I know I have a 1080p-capable TV but I'm receiving a message that says my TV doesn't support DIRECTV's 1080p broadcast. What's wrong?


DIRECTV broadcasts in a format called 1080p24. Your TV may be 1080p-enabled but may support a different format such as 1080p60. Rest assured that you will still be able to view the content; your receiver will automatically show it in the highest resolution your TV supports - 1080i in most cases.
