just get to know the menu(s) well. everytime you fire the BDP up, go into the menu, just to have look-see. I forget what the settings are, but I thought they were a piece of cake at the time. Select 1080p or HDMI if that's available.
Something that you probably are not aware of is that your tv is 24 fps capable, IIRC. And so is that BD-30. Select 24 fps in the menu. As for the tv... I wouldn't know... I thought I heard once that some Sony's had a specific HDMI input that was to handle 24 fps.
ok went on a hunting mission. here's a list for you, and others, if curious about 24fps capable tv's:
DoH, IIRC you got a 2020 right, not 3000? ok nm, sowwie. If I mistaken in memory, please tell me, and I'll give you other tips.
I never considered DVD playback on my system anymore after getting hi-def sources. I just popped it in and watched it. But that's been a while now, Im exclusively hi-def now. gl.
Just got my SXRD and Panasonic BD-30 player today and have now got everything connected - I hope. The manual for the BD-30 looks like something a rocket scientist would read. Being new to 1080P and Blu Ray, I have some questions. My SXRD has a native resolution of 1080P so if I play a Blu Ray disk will it automatically be displayed at 1080P or is there some kind of output menu on the BD-30? By the way, I am using all HDMI connections. What about when I play a standard def disk, what resolution will it be displayed at?
I also have a HD PVR connected by HDMI. The HD telecasts here are in 1080i so I was going to set up my PVR to a resolution of 1080i. There are only two choices on the converter, 1080i or 720P. Will HD telecasts be down converted automatically by the SXRD to 1080i?
I hope my questions aren't too dumb but this home theatre stuff can get very confusing. Thanks.
