Just brought a Samsung PVR SMT-S7800 and a Samsung UE40D5520 LED TV

And I need a little help. I am a little confused how to get the best quality out of this setup.

I assume that I should connect the PVR to the TV using a HDMI lead, yes or no?

Also I have noticed that both the TV and the PVR have resolution settings in the menu and was wondering what these should be set on.

For instance the PVR has 525, 720 and 1080P, so what should this be set on? I will be playing normal TV, HD Broadcasts and Blue Rays. So I am confused as to what i should have this set on, as I do not want to change these settings every time I change the format that I watch.

So if I just leave it 1080p will the box do the rest?

Also they both state that they upscale, so how does this work? Would the Freesat PVR upscale the images or would the TV do it?

A bit confused:rolleyes:

Any help would be great
