Default Why won't my Vizio HDTV display In 1080p?

Well, my HDTV Is a Vizio, and It's a 42 Inch. I been having this problem for sometime though, everytime I turn on my Blu-ray player It says It displays In 720p, I always go In, and change It to 1080i because I assume that's a better looking picture than 720p. But I do try to change my resolution settings to 1080p, but It won't do nothing, and It will just say not supported. It also have 1080p24, but It's also not supported either. It just Irriates me sometimes, because I paid good money for It ( well over a thousand dollars for this back In August of 2007), and It says 1080p, but It won't display In It. Am I just doing something wrong, or Is the HDTV just don't actually have true 1080p? Well, If I can have some feedback on my problem here, I will certainly appreciate It. Thank you!

I have to ask the obvious question first, are you using component or HDMi?

Wow you may want to contact Vizio then but I'm not sure because I've never heard of this particular problem before.

Yeah It's weird because It's a Black HDMI cable, and I looked again to make sure If It's plugged Into the right ports, It was right In the Blu-ray player, but behind my HDTV there's an HDMI 1, and a HDMI 2 port. I never notice that there before, I don't know what would be the difference between the two?

The two ports are for switching between two Hi-Def sources. Try switching between the two on your remote and see what happens. Could it be that you don't have the correct input selected?

The reason why you can not get 1080p on that tv is because its a 720p display and is not capable of using a 1080p signal

Oh ok. Well thank you for the Input I appreciate It. But, I just have one more question to ask.... Will my Blu-ray still look fine In 720p? I know It won't look as detailed as 1080p, but which Is better to use watching Blu-rays, 720p or 1080i?

It will look fine in either 720p or 1080i. However, I set would set it for 720p because thats the native resolution of your TV.

Don't sweat it and enjoy.
