    Hello all,

    Im using the Toshiba 50H81 RPTV, and I recently hooked up Xbox. Im wondering if there is a way to know if the tv is actually in 480p mode? Is there a setting or something? Info buttton?

    Thanks!!

    First off, that TV can never be in 480p mode, since it only displays 540p or 1080i. However, it will always be in 540p mode unless it is receiving a 1080i signal from the HD inputs on the back. Even if you pass this TV set a 480p signal it will upconvert it to 540p.

    So, I am assumming that an xBox can't output 1080i, therefore you are seeing 540p when you use it on tyou TV.

    Actually, the X-Box CAN output 1080i, but there aren't any games out yet that support that feature...

    I would, however, be interested in knowing if there was a way to see what resolution the TV is at...
