    How 'bout you do a search on "1080p" here on the forum? The capability is nothing new. You've been around long enough that you might have noticed sometime in the last couple of years.

    So much useless discussion instead of just one picture from a screen of the HR20... I'm start thinking it could make red face some ppl by revealing missing knowledge. :) Obvious knowledge.

    Mostly C, sometimes C++ and ASM.

    I don't feel there is a need to get out my camera and take a picture of something we all know exists. It has been established by reputable sources that the HR20 can do 1080p. Just like all the other resolutions, you have to enable it by checking the box and hitting info when you see the confirmation text. Just from the existence of the feature you know there is a way to enable it in the menu. It looks exactly the same as any other HD receiver capable of 1080p.

    You're better off letting it go. He knows you are right, he'd just rather stir the pot.

    I have my doubts and posting such picture would be much easy then how you presenting. :) For such purpose I'm using video grabber (USB) for best picture, for quick answer it could be a camera from my phone.

    Nope, I'm not stirring - don't need to put your words in my mouth.

    I'm doubt the HR20 has 1080p selection box in a Setup Menu.

    You have your doubts about WHAT? That the HR2x models can output 1080p/24? You have GOT to be kidding. :nono:

    Yeah, I know. My HR20 is packed away and it's not worth the effort to get it out and hook it up just to feed the trolls.

    Is there really any doubt? HR20s can do 1080p. They just can't do 3D.

    Now all of you, back to topic and be polite.

    What? Would you like to try that again? You're speaking in code again.

    Menu screen ? Driving 3 hours to see just like that ? No thanks. I would imagine testing you wine from your grape-yard... :)

    How many times I should mention - a picture of menu with choices of screen resolutions include "1080p".

    Maybe you could send a camera that works with Win7 :lol:, my old Kodak only works with XP, and that PC is still in pieces on the floor.

    My HR20-700 definitely has it in the setup menu, and my Sammy HDTV confirms that it is receiving 1080p/24 when I watch a VOD that is 1080p/24.

    I'm really lost now. I thought there might have been something peculiar about the H20...but if you are extending the assertion to the HR20-700, then you are simply wrong. It's here on my HR20-700, it works and is verifiable by the Sammy HDTV.

    I'm neither hallucinating, nor lying, but I'm not going to drag out a camera just for the intransigent. :)

    Menu > Setup >HDTV > TV Resolutions:

    Here's the list:

    480i (blank)
    480p (marked)
    720p (marked)
    1080i (marked)

    1080p (marked)

    Notice the double spacing between 1080i and 1080p in the list...that's exactly as it appears in the screen. "More Info" choice is listed in the bottom right hand corner.

    I have a hint for such circumstance - SD card reader; remove the card from your camera and insert it into the reader connected to your lovely Win7 via USB. ;)
