  1. 1

    Activate Auto Aspect Ratio. The Auto Aspect Ratio feature automatically selects the picture size when one of the following inputs sources is received --- a 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080 signal from the Ant/cable input; a 480i signal from the Video 1 or 2 inputs; a 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080i signal for the Component Video 1 or 2 inputs; and a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p or VGA (60/72/75Hz) signal from any of the HDMI inputs.

  2. 2

    Choose the 1080 setting manually. All input sources are interpolated to 1080i (interlaced) or 1080p (progressive) regardless of their native resolution.

  3. 3

    Activate SRT (super resolution technology). SRT upconverts and enhances 480i/p and 720p input signals, allowing DVDs and TV channels to be displayed in near high-definition picture quality. The Toshiba LCD TV displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p. The SRT feature offers five settings: Auto, Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3 or off.

Tips and warnings

  • The HDMI inputs will accept 1080p (24Hz/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA and SXGA signals while the component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i.
