I am sure this has been discussed before, but being new I am not sure how to find the answer. I searched FAQ's and didn't see the answer. So here goes does the DTC100 allow a conversion for 720p. WPVI in Phila. is telling me my DTC100 is the problem and I have no problems receiving CBS or HDnet. Please help thanks...

The DTC100 does not convert to 720p. It converts all incoming 720p signals to 1080i. Does that help ? I'm not sure what the station you're having a problem with is sending out.

Thanks, Steve it does help. WPVI in Phila. is (ABC) and they were telling me that my DTC100 does not convert to 1080i and that it converts to 480p. I thought I knew what I was talking about when talking to there engineering department, but they were trying to convince me that the DTC100 is my problem. I have green flickering during some not all of there HD feeds. I do not have any problems with CBS, NBC or HDnet.

This is quote from the RCA web site for the DTC-100 STB from the FAQ section.


"High Definition Monitor Output


The RCA DTC100 has a High Definition Monitor

output that supports high-resolution video up to the

limit of the ATSC High Definition standard of 1920

pixels x 1080 lines. This output is provided using an

industry-standard 15-pin D-subminiature connector

using common RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color

components. This output is generally compatible with

multi-sync displays complying with industry standards

promoted by the Video Electronics Standards

Association (VESA).


The HD Monitor output preserves the horizontal

resolution of the broadcast, which for standard

definition digital broadcasts may be up to 720 pixels

per line and for high definition broadcasts may reach

1920 pixels per line. The vertical output of the

HD Monitor output will be either 540p (progressive) or

1080i (interlaced) depending upon the input format.

Specifically, both 720p and 1080i inputs are output as

1080i; all other formats are output as 540p.


These conversions allow for 1080 line output for high

definition broadcasts, and for progressive display of

all standard definition formats, including analog NTSC

television broadcasts."


Hope this clears up the issue.

Actually that is kind of misleading. It is true that in HD mode it outputs either 540p or 1080i but 540p is only outputed on their standard definitoin content. All the SD stuff is converted to 540p. All Hd material (720p and 1080i) are outputted as 1080i.

What is misleading?


It says the same thing you did, 1080i for HD and 540p for everything else.

It is confusing becuase it could be read that if the signal is 720p(progressive) then it will be outputed as 540p(progressive). In fact the first time i read it thats what it sounded like it was saying.

I am confused. How could this be read as saying 720p would be output as 540p???

No doubt about it. All the local 720p broadcasts that I know of (ABC HD & PBS demo reel) are not output as 540p. The PQ difference between HD and Non-HD is quite obvious.
