I had the same issue/frustration when I first hooked my tv up and after reading in the manual an looking online, the TV will automatically change to the 1080p when the channel you are watching is shown in 1080p at 120hz. Otherwise it will only show the the program at the 60hz. Hope this helps!!

Trevorovert,

If you take your remote and click on "Menu" the first thing that comes up should be the "Picture" listing. Scroll down to the "Advance Video" option then click enter on the remote. You will see the option called "Insignia Motion 120Hz" Click enter then select the high option. That should fix your problem :)

Question

Controllable by DirecTV controls

I recently installed DirecTV. The remote control doesn't power up/off our Insignia flat screen TV. We have our DirecTV control which works with sound and channel changing (of course), but we need to have the insignia remote to turn power on/off and change the input settings. Afraid to buy another Insignia. I asked 3 different DirecTV reps and they all told me that some brands just don't work with the remotes. When we buy our new television, we will avoid this brand unless someone can assure me that a particular model with work.

It isn't just Insignia, I had this issue with my Xfinity remote on an older Magnavox tube tv, and my parents have to use their TV remote for certain things with Mediacom digital cable on a Westinghouse LCD. When I asked, I got the same response about some brands just not meshing with their hardware, and, while a pain, seems to be true. Like someone else said, there should be codes for your remotes to try and if that doesn't work, universal remotes should.

We have UVerse and there is a code to set up the remote to your tv. If you have nothing like this then you might be stuck. I would try a universal remote. But I will tell you that this TV is not a good brand. It might be that the tv itself will not let you do this. You might be forced to up grade your cable equipment. But start with a universal remote.

The delivery guys set the remote up and no problems with the Directv remote. It maybe how the remote is aimed at the TV. Aim at the light and the TV brand is listed under Directv.

LCD and LED are different methods for displaying an image on TVs. If you'd like to learn more about the differences, follow this link: http://bit.ly/1ce5pJM
The higher the refresh rate the better on a television.

From Yahoo Answers:
3D Comb filters work actually in 3 Dimensions (not colors).
These are X, and Y (horiz, vertical) within a frame and Time (filtering across frames)

In a 2D filter all processing is done within the same frame, but in 3D filters you also take into account what happened in the previous frame. 3D filters are also called motion adaptive filters, since you decide on whether you apply 3D filtering based on the amount of motion. For most TVs, 3D comb filtering is almost a given.

Yes. It does not have a glassy top that creates glares or shadows. Perfect for a room with varying lighting.

I'm pretty sure they do not have optical out. I was looking for an Insignia that had optical out but none had it. I have the 50" 120hz LCD and it's only coax out.
