Check to make sure that you don't have the DISPLAY Native mode enabled.

I also changed your thread title to be a little more descriptive

Menu > Help & Settings > Setup > Display

Turn Native OFF, then set you front panel display with the Res button to 1080i.

You can also go into TV Type, (on the same menu tree) and cursor up and then over to TV Resolutions and make sure only 1080i has a dot next to it.

I think all TVs support 480i... 480i is basically your old NTSC standard. VCRs, some DVDs (depending on the player too), regular SD TV... 720 x 480 interlaced NTSC, no?

Some TV's won't support 480i via certain connections (mine won't take a 480i via Component or DVI)

Use either 720P or 1080i, whichever looks better on your TV.
