    Best resolution to use for my setup

    I'm sorry if the answer is somewhere in the posts but I would like clarification on the best setting on my Vudu for my Panasonic 58" plasma model TH-58PZ750U. As best as I can tell from the specs this tv does not accept 1080p/24 only 1080p/60 which I assume is why 1080p isn't listed as an option. (I did try show all resolutions and 1080p ends up with the frame displayed on only the upper corner of the screen).

    Should I use 720p or 1080i? Will there be any significant difference?

    Also, is it possible to use the HDMI output and a component output at the same time from the VUDU? (in other words to two different TVs).

    Thank you,

    --Karen

    Welcome to the Vudu Forum!

    I'd advise you to use 1080i.

    I don't think you can use component and HDMI at the same time, but it won't hurt your system to try it.

      You should use whatever setting is representative of the Native Resolution of your display. Your TV is a 1080p/60 TV, the native resolution is 1920 x 1080. Therefore, you should use 1080i as Ed suggested. If you use a 1280 x 720 set then you should use 720p.

      Also, is it possible to use the HDMI output and a component output at the same time from the VUDU? (in other words to two different TVs).
      No. A synched up HDMI connection turns all other outputs off. If you turn the TV using HDMI off, then the component output will operate but as soon as you turn the TV using HDMI back on, then you'll lose the component out. Same goes for composite or S-video connections as well. Also, if you use the 480p switch position, then the composite and S-video connections are turned off always.
