Hello, I've posted this in the HDTV recorders forum but thought I might get some feedback from here.
I've been using my LG 3410A STB for awhile now but have recently encountered a strange problem and hope someone may have a solution or advice.
I previously used the LG with my 720p PJ without issue. I now have it connected to a Sharp 1080p tv and am having issues. I can't get a 1080i signal from the LG to display properly on the sharp via HDMI. The Sharp is showing the 1080i signal from the LG with horizontal aliasing. It's like the full horizontal resolution is not being displayed. For example, overlays of sports scores or ticker tape scrolling along the bottom is somewhat blocky and looks low rez. The onscreen GUI of the LG is blocky also when it's set to display 1080i. 720p looks like it is supposed to.
Now, if I'm watching a 1080i program coming from the LG and suddenly switch to the same program via the tuner inside the Sharp, the 1080i signal is shown like it should be. I don't have any problem with the TV displaying 1080i from component either, only from the LG via hdmi-dvi. I have a pc connected via hdmi at 1080p and don't have any problem with that connection (but 1080i doesn't look right from pc via hdmi-dvi either).
At this point I'm trying to figure out if the problem is in the HDMI-DVI cable (should it be HDMI-HDMI connection only), or maybe the HDMI ports on the TV, or maybe something is wrong with the LG at 1080i and I didn't notice it before since I had it hooked to a 720p device.
Any input is appreciated.
