Hi, we have a Samsung builtin Freeview and it says TV1 is 1080.  However we also have a Igloo in someone's bedroom and today we plugged it into the TV just for fun - TV1 said 720.  Just minutes after.  What's going on? 

Also rather than starting a diff thread - we tried the Xbox 360 also and just played a 1980s DVD movie and it said it was 1080.  Is that enhanced or something?


Cheers ..

Did you connect the Igloo box with HDMI? HDMI will give 1080 but composite connection won't and component may possibly depending on the box and the TV.

As for the Xbox it would seem to be upscaling.

Yep we used the HDMI cable that we were provided by the AOC 23" computer LCD screen.  The same cable was used on the Xbox 360 which reported 1080 when the Samsung TV remote "INFO" was pressed.

OK
You may need to alter the output setting in the Igloo box. It must be set to 720 instead of 1080. Some older TVs can't handle 1080.
