    Hi Im new here so not sure if this is the right bit of the forum but here goes. I tried to watch a recorded hd tv programme this am (on a dvd) but get the message resolution not supported ! I am running a philips dts 3115 home cinema system into a tosh 40" lcd, forget the model no but its hd ready anyway. I don't know if its a problem with the dvd or the tv. Any help appreciated, sorry just read this and i'll be surprised if anybody can make sense of it
    Cheers guys

    What format is the HD movie in? Where did you get it from? Can you watch it on a PC?
    I've burnt hi-def movies (or samples at least) to DVD from the hdwmv.com website and then used my xbox360 to play them, but any normal DVD player won't have a clue what hi-def is and so shouldn't be able to play it.
    I don't know about your particular model, but unless its connected via HDMI or component then it won't be able to output hi-def to the TV, as SCART doesn't support HD AFAIK.

    We need more information about exactly what you're trying to play I think.

    its an hd bbc tv program at 720p in an avi format, my dvd player is connected via hdmi, i can watch it fine through the pc and normal avi/divx files play fine through my dvd player (philips dts 3115) but this just says resolution not supported, i think the only way to narrow it down is to plug my laptop in to the tv by vga and see if it plays that way, but i don't know if this will give me the high def? Im just desperate for some hd input to see what the tv can do :D

    Then its your DVD player, it's not designed to be able to play back 720p avi files.
    An xbox or PS3 is probably your best bet to be able to try out HD.
    EDIT:
    Your laptop will be able to show you HD, just make sure that after you connect it you set the resolution to something as close as you can to 1366*768 - that way you get true 1:1 pixel mapping.
