I have just bought a Panasonic DMR-EX78 DVD HDD recorder which I have connected up to my Samsung LE32 (HD Ready) LCD TV.
In order to upscale existing DVDs, I have attached an HDMI cable. However, when I try and select a resolution in the Panasonic’s menu, 1080p is greyed out. I’m presuming that this is because the Samsung does not support 1080p. The Panasonic manual seems to suggest that I should select 1080p (which I can’t do), so I have selected 1080i instead.
As a beginner to all this, I’m not clear what the difference (if any), is and whether or not I will still benefit from upscaled DVDs having selected 1080i. Am I missing something?
Many thanks for any help or advice.
