More about understand crap 1080p
  1. Are you using HDMI
  2. Yea im Using HDMI. But my question is. Is it 1080p i was told it was but their site has it stated at 720p and to be honest idk anymore.
  3. This TV is not a 1080p res TV. Its res is 1366x768 which makes it to be 720p TV instead. So, you can't get 1080p res on 720p res TV.
  4. yes i realized that but at the store it stated that is was 1080p and the info bar at the top on tv my ps4 when on and playing stat that they are in 1080p so im confused. am i upscaling? nothing looks different from my 1080p monitor for my pc i guess. also im wondering is 720p bad or not? why is my ps4 upscaling too 1080p if its a 720p ?
  5. Are you sure it's exactly your model? Check the model number on the sticker behind the TV. Should it be the right model, although I'm not sure of the following explanation, this is how it looks to me.

    The TV is able to output up to 1080p signals, but is only able to render up to 1366x768 pixels (720p). Anything else above that value is actually a zoomed and scaled-to-fit view of 720p, making things look blurry or jaggedy.

    If I was right, it would prove to be a nice TV, but not the best for gaming...
  6. Upscaling function comes in TVs but not in all. It is possible that some sort of upscaling is being done here. Anyhow, it would be better if you manually adjust it at 720p to get finer results.
  7. yea it said E320i-b1 an the back. i mean as another question is 720p an alright res though. i have computer gamed for year first tiem owning a tv or console. the thing is i feel cheated that they told me it was 1080p but turns out to be 720p i mean i cant really tell the difference on driveclub from my 100p 23in monitor to the tv (guess the upscalling is pretty good there.) i just dont know anymore.
  8. What you probably bought is a 1080i ready TV, meaning it can scale up to 1080 but it is not true 1080. That doesn't mean it should give blurry picture from the PC though. The PS4 (depending on the game) gives an output on 1080 that may be the reason why it says it's 1080 when you plug it in.
    Did you try changing the resolution via the PC when plugging it into the TV?

    Get your money back if it was false advertised.. I don't know where you live but in most western countries you have the right to do so.

  10. Check page 22 of the user manual.

    Changing the Screen Aspect Ratio
    The TV can display images in five different modes: Normal, Stretch,
    Panoramic, Wide, and Zoom. Each mode displays the picture
    differently.
    To change the screen aspect ratio:
    1. Press the WIDE button on the
    remote.
    2. Use the Arrow buttons to
    highlight the aspect ratio you
    wish to view and press OK.
    • Normal preserves the content’s
    original aspect ratio. Since the
    4:3 aspect ratio is not large
    enough to fill the TV’s screen,
    black bars are added to the left
    and right of the display image.
    • Stretch expands the display image to fill the screen.
    Images may appear wider than intended. If you are
    watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black
    bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display
    image. This option is only available when the TV is
    displaying a 720p/1080i source.
    • Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
    Images may appear wider than intended. If you are
    watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black
    bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display
    image. This option is only available when the TV is
    displaying a 480i/480p source.
    • Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges
    of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the
    display image may appear distorted. If the program
    is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or
    2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and
    bottom of the display image.
    • Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen

  11. after some digging adn researching 1360 x 768 is not a bad res since the widscreen of the hdtv can be upscalled 768 is still a decent setting and doestn really matter the ps4 still looks great and i can just switch the tv out for my monitor if i really care for it. this thing si bigger then it and maybe later down the road when i dont have to pay so many bills i can get a 1080p regular one.
  12. Good luck dear.
