HD with HD Compatible TV?

Message 1 of 4
(5,306 Views)

I am thinking about ordering FIOS.  I currently have an HD compatible TV (about 6-7 years old).  The TV has component hook-ups.  If I order the HD Extreme Package and the HD Receiver will I be able to get true HD?  Or will the HD channels look the same as the SD channels? 

 

Thanks for your help.

Is your TV 1080i/p Then yes it will be HD. Component  connections have the ability to get a Max picture of 1080p. Fios only supports TV up to 1080i. As do all Cable companies.

In looking at the owners manual from my TV the only thing I could find is the following: 

The ColorStream HD1 and HD2 jacks can be used with Progressive (480p) and Interlace (480i, 1080i) scan systems.
