Hi,

I just bought a new DVD - Pioneer DV-400V.

I entered the menus of the DVD and change the resolution to 1080p.

Just after i did that, my TV screen became black.

I managed to restore the default settings but I still don't understand why do I get a black screen when i change the resolution to 1080p.

Is it my TV that doesn't support the resolution?

The TV model is: TOSHIBA REGZA 32WL66Es.


plz help...

The 32WL66ES is a 1366x768 panel display which supports 1080i as the maximum input resolution.


You will want to set the player to 720p, as this is the closest to your display's native resolution.

Ok 10x

But if i choose from the DVD menus the 1080i resolution I still able so see, only when I try the highest resolution of 1080p I get the black screen.

Do you still recommend the 720p and not the 1080i? Why...?

A rule of thumb is to use a resolution from the player as close to the native resolution of the display as possible.


1080i from SD-DVD is suspect because producing it requires an extra interlacing/deinterlacing step that the other resolutions do not. But some people like it.


You should try all the options and pick which looks the best to you. Use a calibration disc for best results.

Your display will accept both 720p and 1080i. It will not display 1080p. I agree with the previous poster. Choose the one you like best.

Yup. On a decent 1366x768 display you will probably not see a difference between 720p and 1080i from a good source. Use 1080i from a HDM player, don't take the 1080p source on disc to 720p.

So if i download a 1080p movie from the net i cannot see it on my TV, right? (by connecting a DiskOnKey to the DVD or by any other option).

What kind of 1080p movie? Does the Pioneer DVD player play high-def files of that type? If it does, then if you select 720p or 1080i output it should play them. I haven't tried it myself.

Any movie i search for HD it always says what's the resolution.

But when i tried to play from the DVD the 1080p movies i had to change the DVD resolution to 1080p which caused the black screen from the begining...

AFAIK, the Pio 400V (and 410V) only support SD files. (Ie, they will not play 1080p files.)


This has nothing to do with the HDMI resolution you select on the player btw.

I thought this sounded familiar. Her's your previous thread on much the same topic...

So why does it's written on the DVD: "1080p HDMI" ?

Written on the player? It's an upconverting player. It takes a standard definition source (480i DVD-Video) and upconverts it to 1080p.


It does not play a 1080p source.

Most HDMI DVD players do not support HD (720p/1080p) files btw. If you want a player that does play HD files, you'll have to look at other devices such as the latest gaming systems or certain media players/servers. Some Blu-ray players also play HD files if they're converted to an appropriate disc/file format the player can recognize (such as AVCHD). Another option is just to connect your PC directly to the TV and play it on that.


Couple links with more explanation:
