Protron TV will not display 480p or 720p from a Directv Receiver using composite video cables

Cannot get my Protron LCD TV to display any resolution other than 480i. 480p and 720p look like a scrambled picture on the display. I'm using the red, green, and blue composite output on the back of the Directv Receiver. The Protron TV only has a DVI input an the Directv Receiver only has an HDMI output. Shouldn't I get HD using the composite out/in?

My tv is not 'seeing' any of the hdmi devices plugged into it.


surge protectors do not work very well. They dont really stop mildly high voltages. If you can plug the Directv receiver into another TV and it works, then you have a bad digital board in your TV.

Is this TV digital


This is not a digital TV. This TV has only an NTSC (analog) tuner. A converter will be needed to tune digital broadcast TV stations, your CATV or satellite company supplies a converter to allow this set to display programs.

The display is limited to "480P" resolution, called "Enhanced Definition", which is a step up from the traditional NTSC standard of "480i" resolution or "Standard Definition". ("P is "progressive scan" and "i" is "interlaced scan"). Progressive scan provides a better picture quality when compared to interlaced scan images. High Definition or "HD" is a signal that contains data that allows display of images with 720P, 1080i and 1080P resolutions (the larger numbers indicate more information, or higher picture quality). Your TV will receive all signals, SD, ED and HD, but will down convert to ED. Signals can be brought into the set via 2 composite-video connections, 1 each component- and S-video, an RF antenna/cable-box/VCR input, and a 15-pin D-Sub analog RGB input. More info can be found here.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Invalid format floating on screen on LG 32" how to resolve????


If you are using HDMI, the source resolution could be too high. Your TV is only 720p so if your equipment is set for 1080p, it will not display. Connect the composite (yellow) video lead to the TV and change to that input. Use the equipment's menu function and verify the resolution. Make sure it is set for 720p. Also try a different HDMI cable, yours may have a bad lead inside.

I cant figure out how to change the tv from 480p to 720p.


The video resolution is not adjust at the TV, the video source will dictate what the TV will display, 480p in = 480p display, if the source is not 720p, it will not display 720p. It works the same way as you PC monitor, you adjust the PC video setting at the PC not at the monitor.

How do I connect the tv to a satillite receiver?


You have multiple options here depending on the type of interconnect cables you currently physically have or are willing to purchase.
Below is a web site with a review of your monitor.
http://us.sanyo.com/LCD-Televisions/720p-31-5-HDTV

The best way is for you to have a HDMI cable. This carries your High Definition Video and digital audio from your Satelite Reciever all in one. The satelite box will also know that your monitor is only able to display the lower 720P resolution than the current 1080P resolution and will automaticly display images correctly.
HDMI is the highest and best way to connect your satelite box to your monitor.
Component - three wire cable 'Red, Green & Blue' is then the next best - note you will still need to have a stereo Audio cable also Red and White dual cable to connect also. This connection doesn't communicate with your monitor and you will have some set up to do on the mointor itself to display the resolution you would like. Between 720P, 'Highest resolution' , 720i ''next highest resolution' then 480p ' next in line' and then worse case 480i 'lowest resolution'.
If you don't have a HDMI cable - and go to by one. Don't go and buy the most expensive. It is best to keep the cable short as possible. HDMI doesn't effectly travel over long cables more than 8'. You will get color shifts in your images. Monstor cable is very expensive and not needed. Anything your local Wallmart and or Target have will be fine under 8 feet.

How to get 1080 resolution from my plasmaI have the 6842 pe EDTV


DVDs are 480p
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DVD is 720p or 1080i or 1080p

you cannot increase resolution, if you want to play a 480p/i video on a 1080p/i or 720p screen, you are merely stretching the picture.

If there is any kind of box that tells you it can convert 480i/p to 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) it is simply stretching the picture.

you can convert 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) to 480i/p as you are taking out information from the video to make it smaller.
