need to know what type of hd service you are on.
you will be able to tell a high def. signal 1080i from a digital 480p with the naked eye!

If you see “HD” on the info, those should be 1080i, but not necessarily true HD. If you see pillar bars, those are more likely to be up-converted signals from standard def and if you see 16:9 full frame pictures, those are true HD. You will see DTV on the info if programs are 480p.

Correction: You will see "SD" on the info in DTV channels if programs are 480p.

Got it!


I see SD allot but I see The world series at HD Widescreen and that must be 1080i!

SD=480
HD=108OI

What is 720?

Yeah, the world series is broadcasted at true HD. And in your case, it is 1080i but I think incoming signal is actually 720p, though.

720p is the other HD formats that some television stations (ABC, Fox e.t.c) use for broadcasting. 1080i format is used by CBS, NBC and many other companies like HBO, Showtime, e.t.c.

Unfortunately, CRT-based HDTV (like you have) cannot natively display 720p, so, all incoming 720p signals will be converted to 1080i.

ohhhhhhh ok cool thanks for the info.


what to hear something funny,
I switched from OTa to CABLE using Qam and the series was in SD.
not HD What is up with that? Is the cable company cutting corners or it is my TV?

Well I learned one thing. Outdoor Antenna is the way to go!
Just when we all thought that was the past! Ha
