Found out the problem, looked on the back of the tv. Of the 3 component inputs on the back only 1 supports 1080i. The other 2 only support 480p. Which means for now that any time I wanna watch the blu ray discs I'll have to switch the cables in the back from the hd cable to the player. Its a pain in the ass but since I will upgrade sets by Aug it's only temporary. I bought 7 titles. I'll watch some later but so far the picture on Casino Royale is impressive.
