Samsung HD-850 And Component Cables (Again)

09-06-2005, 08:16 PM
Hi, I recently purchased a Samsung HD-850 and entered the HDCP Free code with the intent to push 1080i through the component cables. The code worked fine, but when I select video -> and choose HDMI/component (p-scan), and then go to change the resolution, 480p is greyed out and I can only adjust the brightness. Is there something else I have to change or adjust?

1080i is not progressive scan, it's interlaced! 480p, 720p are progressive.

Your TV must be "HDTV ready" to see 1080i
Check your TV manual for its resolutions. :)

After the remote angle hack, the way to change resolutions is hit the HDMI Sel button the remote. I think this the answer the guy was looking for.
