Default HD XA2 Upconversion Resolutions

I just recently picked up my XA2 after swapping out the A20 and I have a question regarding upconverting standard DVD's. I have the player set to 1080i as I don't have a 1080p tv....yet And unlike the A20 I always get the message coming across the tv screen saying that the res is changed to 480p??? Yet the player is showing 1080i and the on screen display is huge....unlike being tiny in the top left of the tv screen when playing HD DVD's. The player has 2.0 firmware and I'm running HDMI to my amp, so in that sense it hasn't changed. Any suggestions or help would be great!

you're running HDMI into your amp, are you also running HDMi out of the amp and into the TV? Also, did you change your front switch to "mode 2?" I've had a few small troubles with the HD machines resolutions, nothing major though. have you gone into the menu and set the picture options "up to 1080P?"

Yeah, I'm running HDMI to my amp and from the amp to the tv it's HDMI, the front switch is on Mode 2 and I have the resolution set to "up to 1080i" as I don't have a 1080p tv.

Hmm, other than those basic troubleshooting questions I'm lost ... have you tried resetting the unit by unplugging and re-plugging the HDMI connection, or also unplug the power cord and re plug. I only mentioned those first suggestions because that is how i FINALLY got an XA2 to work, took forever, but is pretty good now.

I will try those steps and see what happens, but for some odd reason it shows it's 1080i for the video output but the on screen display takes up almost half of my 50" tv, and it's only on standard DVD's???? Like WTF!!!
