    As with 36ZD26p, the manual doesn't mention HDTV resolutions so the assumption is that it DOES'T support HDTV...

    JUST FOR INFO THIS WAS MY QUESTION


    Dear sir/madam,

    What is the native resolution of the 36ZD26P TV in pixels both vertically and horizontally ? Do you know will it be able to support any of the up coming HD TV codes via component input ie. 720p or 1080i

    Thanks for any info.

    Hi, just a note for you guys, for those of you who have a Xbox 360 then if you're connected via component input then you are by default running on ED (extended definition - 480i) if you go to the settings on Xbox Dashboard and go to Video and change the HD to 1080i it will work! But the screen seems to large for the TV, 720i blue screens and i'm searching high and low to see if I can get HD running on it properly.

    Why not try accessing the service menu when the TV is running at 1080i and adjust the HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL settings?
