How-To

Low Resolution

If video from the Component cable appears blurry, fuzzy, or low-resolution, it may help to change the resolution manually.
1. On your video source device, enter the Settings menu and look for Video or Graphics options.
2. In the Video or Graphics section of the Settings menu, look for a Resolution option.
3. Set the Resolution to the maximum resolution supported by your TV or monitor.

HDCP

Most modern devices use HDCP to protect video content from unauthorized copying. HDCP allows content creators to specify a maximum resolution that can be used when playing their content through analog cables like Component cables. This resolution is generally 720p.

If your video source device is set to use a resolution above 720p, but your video still looks low resolution, you may be watching video that has been restricted to lower resolutions through analog cables.
