    Default Technology questions (TV)

    I saw this posted in another thread but I did not want to hijack it.

    I have a LG 1080P TV, and the other day I was watching a blu-ray player (with a HDMI cord) and I got a little note at the bottom of the TV that said it was playing in 720P.

    I do not know much about technology, so this may be a stupid question, but why was the movie not playing in 1080p? Was this having to do with my blu ray player?

    FTR, the movie was avatar.

    Check your player's settings. Just turn it on without a disc in the tray to get to the settings. At least that's how you usually do it IIRC.

    Somewhere there should be an option about what the output is (480i, 480p, 720i, ... up to 1080p)

    Thank you Hicks.

    I did this, and I was able to set it to 1080P. However, once the move started I would still get that "message".

    Sorry, that's about as far as I can go with trying to help. We've got some "hard core" folks who probably can see you through this, though.

    Go through the TV's settings as well. It could be set to display inputs at 720.

    I seem to remember when 1080p's first came out that some had wonky inputs on them that couldn't handle it. Hopefully that's not the case.

    Here's a question I probably should know the answer to but I don't... Could it be the disc itself is a native 720? ....Or are all Blu Ray's 1080?

    I know the player should upscale a standard DVD but possibly it would not upscale something if it's natively 720 (which is a Hidef spec). And since the HDMI connection lets the TV and Blu Ray player talk amongst themselves about how best to display the disc, maybe this is what they decided.... Display it in its native format.

    I could be totally off base on this theory. Do all of your Blu Ray discs show on your TV as 720p? ...Or is it just this one?

    I don't have a Blu Ray or a 1080p television and so I haven't look this closely at the spec and what the media and devices are capable.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    It was my understanding that all BD's are 1080p.
