I have a Mistubishi WS-65807 1080 TV and just hooked it up to a new HR21 Directv HD DVR Plus. On high def programs, the Mitsubishi only allows me to choose either 480p or 960i. The Directv box shows me messages that say "to fully enjoy your HD picture, please switch to 780p or 1080i". When I set the Directv box to those resolutions, the Mitsubishi shows a blank screen, and continues to offer only 480p or 960i as display choices.

Sorry for the lame question, but can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

use 960i...
you must also use component input 3 (the DTV input) if I remember correctly.

Gregg,

You are awesome...I didn't have it hooked into the DTV inputs...that did it.

Thanks!
