LG 32lc2d - What is it capable of?

Hi there

I have the above lg lcd tv.

In the V+ settings on my set top box settings I can set it to 720 or 1080 not sure which one to use or what my tv can handle?

Cant find anything online either.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A quick google finds your answers

Resolution 1366 x 768 pixels
HD formats 720p, 1080i

So it will do both, try them both and see what you think

I found this on google but I have tried both and not seen a difference.

I thought the 1080 setting on the box was 1080p? Whats 1080i?

No its 1080i, the i stands for interlaced. All broadcast HDTV available in the UK is 1080i .

Your TV is 1366x768 and consequently when it sees a 1080i input it downscales to 768 and deinterlaces the picture as all LCD's are scanned progressively. With the 720p setting on the V+ the V+ downscales and de-interlaces the picture and your Tv rescales it to 768. Generally the 720p setting is better on 1366x768 LCD's not so much for HD but for SD and clearer menus and epg. But try both settings, look hard and see which really is the best for your LCD

Its difficult when the scene changes all the time when watching a program.

Cant tell any difference.

Use a news channel such as BBC News 24 or Sky News where the shot of the presenter is always the same. Also look at the moving headlines at the bottom of particularly Sky news. And as I say look at the V+ Menus and epg.

Another thing you can do is to record HD test card that is shown for a minute at intervals during the day when BBC HD preview is on.
