I was reviewing the specifications from my TN61X81 and came across this:

While standard ColorStream inputs only accept 480i signals, ColorStream HD inputs accept 480i, 480p, 720p (integrated models), and 1080i signals.


My question is on the 720p (integrated models) I have the HDTV-Ready version without the STB which I assume is what they mean my "integrated" (don't know the difference)??


How can I do 720p on this TV, I'm using an HTPC to drive the tv currently at [email protected]


thanks in advance...

The Cinema (TN) Series does not have any integrated models. The only integrated model I've seen is from the TheaterWide (TW) Series. I also have a TN61X81 and I know it does not accept 720p signals. Where are you reading this? No Toshiba TV will accept 720p via the Colorstream Pro inputs. The TW integrated model may take a 720p 8VSB OTA signal and downconvert it to 1080i for display.

I obtained the information from a Toshiba sales flyer:


ColorStream® HD High Resolution Component Video Inputs

ColorStream HD Component Video Inputs work in conjunction with I.D.S.C., and can be found on all Integrated HDTV and HDTV-Ready models. They are the best inputs to use for todays high resolution digital sources such as a DVD player (standard or progressive), or an HDTV set-top box. Because the video signal is split into its base components (Y which is the black and white part of the picture, Pr which is Y minus Red, and Pb which is Y minus Blue), the signal remains pure and unaffected by the TVs NTSC tuner or comb filter.


While standard ColorStream inputs only accept 480i signals, ColorStream HD inputs accept 480i, 480p, 720p (integrated models), and 1080i signals. For the ultimate in flexibility, we have included two sets of ColorStream HD inputs so that you can connect two high-resolution sources, such as a 480p progressive scan DVD player and an 1080i HDTV Set-Top Box. Because the signal from a DVD player is different from an HDTV Set-Top Box signal, we have also added the new ColorStream Optimizer. This simple on-screen control allows you to choose the DVD or DTV setting for each set of ColorStream HD inputs. This ensures the perfect black level setting (0 or 7.5 IRE), and the correct coloromitry, for the best possible picture quality. The result is higher resolution and greater color purity for the ultimate in picture quality. Toshiba continues to lead the way with high resolution ColorStream HD component video inputs.

I don't know what to make of that. I have never heard of a Toshiba TV accepting 720p. I know ours can't (I've tried).
