If my TV is 720p capable, but my converter box is 1080i capable, should I set the resolution of the box to 720p?? Or will it not make much difference if I leave it at 1080i.


I guess this question would apply to my Xbox, as well. Should I bring it down from 1080i to 720p to match my TV?


Thanks for you time!!

Set both boxes to the native resolution of your TV. This will give you the best picture. What kind of set is it (make and model)?

I don't think this is necessarily true, if the scaler in the tv can do a better job of converting the picture than the STB it will produce a better picture. If for example you have a Samy DLP, native 720p, & you have a STB with a poor scaler doing the conversion from 1080i to 720p, your picture will not be as good as if you let the box pass the 1080i signal to the TV & let it do the scaling.

The bottom line is try it both ways and see which produces the better picture.

I was a bit premature in trying to answer the question without the additional information I asked for. Trying it both ways is the way to go. Good luck.
