In the first look document, it was stated that the front resolution light indicated 480P, though output via component or Svideo worked fine on TVs requiring 480i input.
Did anyone try connecting this receiver to an HD TV via HDMI or component to see if it actually is outputting 480P?
I think that's an error in the "first look" document. And it meant *composite* or S-video. The component or HDMI outputs are locked at 480P.
Component is locked at 480p? What about SDTVs that have Component inputs, and only accept a 480i signal?
You know, it doesn't matter how many times you proofread a document I guess you miss something. HoTat2 is correct: that's an error in the document. The correct statement is that the composite
outputs appear to be 480i. The component and HDMI appear to be 480p.
R22's were connected with each of the connections, but necessarily with every possible combination.
For example, even though the resolution light on the front says 480p, the R22 connected just fine to older TVs (like mine) that only have composite connections. Same for those with composite and s-video. Since my TV that is connected to the R22 is an old CRT that only supports 480i (my understanding is composite and s-video only do 480i), the fact that I get a picture tells me that it must be getting output at 480i.
Others in the trial connected via component (it worked) and HDMI (it also worked). So, all the connections on the back seem to work.
