The TV only shows INcoming resolution (what you're feeding IN to the TV, otherwise known as the resolution of your SOURCE).
The TV never displays the OUTresolution. so although you're seeing 1080p (because the tv does upconvert anything you feed into it to 1080p), you will never see the real output numbers (1080p) displayed.
only time you'll ever see "1080p" DISPLAYED when you press "info" is if your SOURCE is ALREADY 1080p.
set your dvdp or bluray player to 1080p output and then check on the TV. (still it's showing what's coming IN; what you see, coming OUT of the tv is ALWYAS 1080p, so there;s no need to display that really)
I have a samsung 46 inch lcd tv, model number ln46a550p. I am having trouble determining if my tv is outputting 1080p.
When my hd cable is plugged in, the tv shows 1920 x 1080i @ 60hz. This is good. When I plug in my blue ray player (using an HDMI cable) the tv shows 1920 x 1080 @ 60hz. I would have expected to see 1920 x 1080p @ 60hz.
I have taken my blue ray player and the same HDMI cable onto another tv, and the other tv (the other tv is an aquos) does show 1920 x 1080p @ 60hz. So at this point, I do not believe that it is a problem with my blue ray player or my hdmi cable.
How can I confirm that I am in fact receiving 1080p when I watch a blue ray movie?
Thank you in advance.
