I have a Panasonic 1080p TV, the model is 42pz77u, when I initially setup my c41 and put a check mark on 1080p I didn't confirm that I could see the image bonehead that I am. Ever since that when I check 1080p it doesn't give me the little pop up to confirm I can see the image and will no longer keep 1080p checked. Right now I only have 1080i only and native off. Is there a way to get that pop up to confirm 1080p again?

You might try "Copy Settings" assuming your server is showing 1080p.

 

There's so little 1080p material out there that I wouldn't sweat it, but I know you want to conform things up the way they should be.

Check the 1080p box.  Then tune to a PPV channel showing a 1080p movie.  You should see a 5-min preview that will show you if your TV properly displays the 1080p video.

The funny thing is, I have a 720p set in another room and was able to check 1080p on the client in that room even though its not a 1080p set, go figure.

According to Panasonic, it is indeed 1080p.

Most of the later "720p" TVs would accept a 1080p signal.

Perhaps not so obviously, most 720p TVs didn't feature 720 line displays anyway so everything was scaled regardless of original format.

There were many 1080p sets that did not support Directv's implementation of 1080p...I can't be the only one that remembers that....I thought it had something to do with 1080/24p support.  Whereas lots of older tv's only did 1080/30p/60p.

Not you are not, you are spot on, the the issue have diminished since most newer TV seems to support 1080p/24

Page 49 of the owners manual says the Tv supports 1080p/60 but not the 1080p/24 signal used by DirecTV.

Well, there's the answer...it doesnt support 1080/24p, which is the only 1080p format that the Directv stb's support.  There was a huge stink about this back 4-5 years ago.  People werent educated that there were different 1080p formats, and lots of people werent happy.

My 720p Bedroom TV does that as well.

 

Its a cheap (though still has a surprisingly good picture I feel) 32" 720p Sceptre not connected to an RVU mini-Genie but by HDMI to a Genie (HR34). And it can accept a 1080p@24Hz signal just fine.

 

Of course it scales it down to the display's native 1366 x 768 (or WXGA) resolution, and then must add 3:2 frame pull down since the display's refresh rate is only a standard 60 Hz. :)

That's the answer, but I could have sworn when I had the pz77u connected to my HR24 that I was able to check 1080p

and what difference would it make just to be able to check the box. The TV will still display the movie on 720p since that is its native resolution

1080p broadcasts are kinda pointless on a 720p set, or even on one of those older displays where the actual resolution of the tv is 1366x768.  There were alot of tvs made a few years ago where this was the actual resolution of thv tv whether they supported a 1080i/p input signal or not.

AFAIK, 720p sets even though referred to that way, have actually always had a WXGA resolution of 1366 x 768.

 

But I think on this issue whether a set is 1080p or 720p, the real loss to be had ("if any") comes when receiving 1080p@24 Hz film based programs on sets with only a standard 60 Hz screen refresh rate instead of the 120 Hz (or greater multiple) type. Then 3:2 must be added back in for display at 60 fps meaning the original 24 fps film rate can not be taken advantage of for a judder free presentation and is lost.
