What is HD signal support?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What does it mean when an LCD TV says it's 720p but has 1080p HD signal support??
post #2 of 7
shot in the dark here, but i'm assuming it means it can read a signal designated for 1080p and downconvert it to display at 720p. Just a guess, but i'm posting here because I don't want to forget about this thread and want to know the answer smile.gif

Just means it will downscale the 1080p signal to the TV's native 720p format. A way to make it sound better that any 1080p source can be used on it, ie. blu-ray player, cable box, an htpc etc.

I've seen some will even go into 1080i mode if a 1080p signal is detected even though 720p is native format. My Vizio does this, which I found remarkably odd.

Ok cool, Im actually driving on my way back to return a VIZIO 32" 1080p HDTV, it was a really old model couldn't hold a VGA signal : /

I'll be picking up the Sony LED Internet TV, hopefully it's nice. From what I heard the interface looks like a PS3's

Why you going 720p over 1080p? Budget or don't have the need for it?

The Sony is 1080p, that's the one I want to get now. And it is expensive.

Just got the Sony NSX 32GT1 and I am blown away! thumb.gif this is by far the best TV i have ever seen. The interface indeed looks like a PS3 screen. but i ran into a problem when i use my PC with it.. input lag, there is no VGA or DVI connectors so i have to use HDMI and i hear that can allow input lag. How can i stop the input lag?
