hd HD Ready? I'm lost...

17 posts in this topic

Okay I'm more than sure that this is a dumb question but I'm quite lost right now.

 

I live in a rent apartment and we had this Philips HD Ready TV here. Now since I got my new PC parts I want to hook it up with my 280x card with HDMI.

 

So is this TV capable of giving out 1080 or not trough my card? I dont have the users manual since I guess the owner just threw it away or something.

 

This is confusing as hell :(

In most of europe - HD Ready = 720p, Full HD = 1080p.

 

So you can probably output 1280x720.

HD Ready is 720p (basically a small TV or a cheap large TV).

Full HD is 1080p (only worth it at around 32" and above).

Remember that some Full HD 1080p TVs can't accept a PC input at 1920x1080 (again, generally cheap TVs). This was particularity common with TVs in the mid-2000s (they accepted only up to 1024x768 from a PC, usually).

So my smartphone doesn't need full HD on its 4 inch screen!? - the lies! the horror!

So I'm guessing this is bs right?

 

 

The main difference between Full HD and HD Ready is that a Full HD display has a built-in HD-capable tuner whereas a HD Ready display is capable of showing high-definition signals, but does not have the integral set-top box for decoding them.

It's not quite the same because you see a TV from several feet away. You see a phone screen from several inches away.

Yes. Would be illegal advertising (deceptive) in the UK.

That's how they were marketed here, could just be a regional thing though.

Either way, find out the model number of the TV and look it up, that's the only way you'll know for certain.

"The main difference between Full HD and HD Ready is that a Full HD display has a built-in HD-capable tuner whereas a HD Ready display is capable of showing high-definition signals, but does not have the integral set-top box for decoding them."

 

^ Is correct.  HD ready TV's do NOT have a built in HD tuner, but can display HD out.

 

I have an 10yr old Mitsubishi Rear Projection tv (still has an amazing picture) that is HD-Ready.  It only Component and Composite inputs on it (No HDMI Port)  If does 480i, 480p, 1080i.    It doesn't do 720p or 1080p.

 

Some HD-ready's can hit do 720p though.

So I'm guessing the TV can actually do 1080i trough my card trough HDMI?

 

Since I looked up the model on the net and it seems it can display HD, at least thats what the manual says.

It's a complete joke - a naming convention to do nothing more than confuse people.

The screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768p according to Google - that makes it 720P.

That's for TV signals, for PC the best you'll get is 1360x768 @ 60 Hz.
