Help with samsung sp43w6hlx

04-07-2006, 08:26 AM
Hi I have a samsung sp43w6hlx rear projection tv. On the top left corner it says HDTV 1080i Ready yet when I plug any equipment that is 1080i compatible the TV is not able to display it. I have tried a xbox and buffalo network media player through the componet input which both plays in 480, 720 or 1080i modes. The TV is able to diaplay in 480i mode yet anything higher and it just gives me a black screen! Why is that? If it says it is 1080i ready surely it should be able to display in that mode? Can any one help me?

If you check your manual closely (near the front of the manual) it explains that when you first start up the TV, there is a button to toggle the TV to accept 1080

When i first switched on the TV i do not recall having that option, but is there anyway of enabling that option now???
