    i can not seem to get the Tivo Mini to output in 1080p resolution. I believe that no Live TV channels broadcast in that resolution but even trying the Amazon app and watching something that Amazon says is in 1080p, but my tv says it’s 1080i. I have the video setting on Auto b/c I cannot select 1080p/24fps. When I use the PS3 the tv shows 1080p resolution. I re-used the same cord to eliminate that as cause, and hooked the Mini directly to the Tv, bypassing the A/V receiver which does support 1080p. I have the same issue with Mini on my 4k tv. Not sure what I’m missing??

    First, select 1080p60. Next select 1080p24/25. You can't select only 1080/p24. The Auto setting will be what is displayed on the right side of the screen. Read the text. I have mine set to only 1080i and 1080p/24 since the 24fps only applies to streaming content like Amazon. I don't have 4k.

    To test Amazon 1080/p24, play the trailer for the movie Fury.

    Don't use Auto. Select what your TV supports. I have a A93 Mini and Mini VOX on the same TV. One says 1080p60 preferred and one says 1080i preferred. Bugs.

    THanks. I actually had to first select the prefered setting of 1080i then it allowed me to select the 1080p setting. I had been trying to go down in order - I am sure there’s a good reason in some programmers mind.
