Tosh HD-E1 & Toy Story problem - weird!

Hi everyone

When I play my R2 copies of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 the player puts a message on screen that "high resolution is not available and playback will be at 576p".

Is this particular to the Toy Story discs or do I have the settings wrong somewhere? Thanks for any help ..... :thumbsup:

I got my HD-E1 yesterday and last night got the same message as yourself when I tried aeon flux standard R2 dvd,
from what I've read it's something to do with the restrictions placed on the component output not being allowed to do an upscaled signal to the screen,
so looks like an upgrade to a hi def 1080 screen with HDMI connection is on the cards for me now !

Use the HDMI lead and not component and you will get around this DVD format restriction.

As you will see from my sig, the Tosh HD-E1 is connected to a Tosh 32WLT66. This is via HDMI and so the component issues and the upscaling you mention should not be an issue.

I don't have Toy Story, but just to eliminate Pixar from any DRM stuff, I fired up Monsters Inc, and it upscaled with no problems.

now that is scary, I'm taking delivery of a sharp 1080p lcd screen today and I was expecting to get upscaled output from standard dvd from the tosh via hdmi, I'll be gutted if it still only throws out 576p.:rolleyes:

The E1 will upscale SD DVDs to 1080i via HDMI, as long as you don’t have anything connected to the component output at the same time.

I made this mistake, thinking that I could have my PJ connected via HDMI and the component feeding my 32” Sony. The user manual does not make it clear, that if you have both outputs connected, then SD DVDs will not be upscaled.

I have nothing connected via component. The only SD disc that gives this message is Toy Story - was just wondering if this was a particular thing with that disc or whether I have my settings wrong?

My XE1 is connected via HDMI through my amp and I have nothing connected to component. I definitely get this message for Doc Martin DVDs from the boxed set, but I am 99% sure that I am getting upscaling because the quality is dreadful on a non-upscaling DVD player. I don't recall getting this message from other SD DVDs, but I may be wrong about that. Certainly every SD DVD that I have played so far looked very good.
