I set up my WDTV Live the other day with no insurmountable problems. I settled on using firmware 1.04.22_V and all seems OK
Its connected to my Philips LED TV via HDMI and in the video output setting I naturally selected Auto, along with auto colourspace and match framerate to on.
But what is the HDMI auto setting supposed to do? I assumed it would match the video resolution of the file being played but thats not the case. No matter what file I play, whether its 576i 720p 1080i or 1080p the resolution is always 1080p. At this setting my interlaced files dont look very good. If I manually set HDMI to 1080i they look cleaner and sharper.
Is there a way to achieved this through the HDMI auto setting or is that not what it means…?
