  5. Select the desired aspect ratio and resolution, and then press OK:
    1. 4:3 standard definition. Used for ordinary televisions.
    2. Widescreen standard definition. Used if you have a wide-screen TV (16:9 aspect ratio) that does not display in high-definition.
    3. 720p on high-definition screens. Used if you have a wide-screen TV that displays images 720 pixels wide (this is sometimes called “enhanced definition”).
    4. 1080i on high-definition screens. Used if you have a wide-screen TV that displays high-definition images (1080 pixels wide). Note Depending on you set-top box model, the following item in the list might also appear, enabling you to set the display for 1080p format.

  7. If you select an HD setting (720p, 1080i, or 1080p) and then click CCONTINUE, the HD Mode wizard appears. The HD Mode wizard enables you to check that the TV can display HD content properly.
