Trouble with our new Mitsu WD62628

My family recently purchased a WD62628. We have a set of component video cables. We attempted to hook it up to our new TV, thinking we would get a resolution of 1080i, but instead still get 480i. Whats goin on? Can we adjust it on the set? We've skimmed the manual and couldn't find anything. Any ideas?

Here's some more info


Sorry for not including enough. We've got a set of component video cables hooked up to a Samsung DVD player. We have an HDMI cable for our cable box, and that will be comming in a few days. Thats not what we're worring about. We connected the DVD player w/ the component video cables last night, thinking we would get 1080i automatically, but that isn't the case. I was simply wondering if on a Mitsubishi WD62628, is there a setting to change the display from 480i to 1080i?

possibly set up on both

Your Samsung DVD player may also need to be set up for the right output. I have used a number of players that require you to tell it what type of display (TV) you are connecting to. Once that is done, if the input on the TV has been set, it should detect the input signal and all should be fine. If not, then yes you will have to go through the TV's menu system too, to make sure it has been set up correctly.

When you hook up your new hi-def cable box with the h.d.m.i. cable Your t.v. should automatically switch to 1080I and display it on the screen. My Toshiba d.l.p. shows 480 when I play my d.v.d. player and then displays 1080I on my sat system sounds like you are on your way to having a sweet home theater system. Also you are going to love the hi-def package on satellite and see if they offer Voom which is 5 more channels of great programming. Please keep us posted how everything turnes out, and plan on spending your life savings on your new 5.1. soundsystem and snack bar ha ha have a nice weekend stewart

Chew on this....


A DVD signal will display at 480i or 480p, depending on the player. You will not be able to see 1080i or 1080p displayed on your tv simply because the dvd doesn't have that much resolution. Your tv will display the cable signal at 1080i when you hook up your hi-def boc with hdmi.

Even though your dvds are showing up on the tv in 480p, the tv will upconvert them to 1080i. There are no settings of any kind on your tv or your dvd player to change it so that the tv displays at 1080i.

Even when I have a progressive scan dvd player hooked up to my 60XBR1, it displays the source as being 480p. This is normal.
