Setting-up the Correct Screen Resolution on the Digital Media Extender

Picture quality is one of the important points to consider in televisions.  The important aspects of picture quality are the following:

  • Contrast ratio
  • Color saturation
  • Color accuracy
  • Resolution

Resolution refers to the number of distinct pixels that can be displayed in each dimension. The current standards in TV resolution are the following:

  • 480i - 704x480 interlaced
  • 480p - 704x480 progressive
  • 720p - 1280x720 progressive
  • 1080i - 1920x1080 interlaced
  • 1080p - 1920x1080 progressive

Setting-up the Correct Screen Resolution on the Digital Media Extender

Step 1:
On the Main Menu window, select Settings.

Step 2:
Press the right arrow on the remote and select Video.

Step 3:
Go to HDTV Resolution and select the type of resolution (480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p ) the TV uses.  If you are not sure which resolution to use, refer to the TV’s documentation.  

NOTE:  You may start selecting 480p then go all the way up to identify the type of resolution the TV uses.  In this example 480p is selected.
