How Do I Set My Plasma screen TV To Display 1080i?



All current Samsung Plasma TVs can receive 1080i signals, but none display a 1080i picture. Depending on your model, the TV will convert the 1080i signal to either a 720p HDTV picture or a 1080p HDTV picture.


Of the 2007 Samsung plasma TVs, all HP-T series plasma TVs display all input in the 720p HD format. All FP-T series plasma TVs display all inputs in the 1080p HD format.


Depending on the input signal, your Samsung Plasma TV will either up-convert or down-convert the signal. For example, if your Plasma TV displays at 720p, then it will up-convert a 480i or  480p signal to 720p and down-convert a 1080i or 1080p signal to 720p.


Note: Your Samsung Plasma TV will let you change the size of the picture (from 16:9 to 4:3, for example, for standard cable broadcasts), but the signal format (the displayed resolution, for example, 720p) will remain unchanged. The TV will compensate for the smaller, non-HD size by adding bars to the sides or top and bottom of the screen.
