    I have an older Sharp Flat Screen TV with 2 HDMI Outputs...I noticed 2 days ago that the Video Output of my U Verse signal was 1080, but the Apple TV was 720. I switched the cables, and everything remained the same..So it is not the HDMI slot with the problem, I bought a new HDMI cable for The Apple TV and the Output continues to be 720.

    In looking at the Apple TV Menu I tried forcing the 1080 setting from Auto to Manual, but I get an error and ultimately the unit resets to the lower 720.

    I also have a slightly older same Apple Box Generation in the Living room, and there, both the Apple TV Box and U Verse broadcast in 1080.

    Any Clues ???

    Connect it to a computer running iTunes and via iTunes - restore the iOS on the AppleTV.

    kch50428 ....Just one question before I do that...Right now I am connected on the Home wi-fi Network and I can hear music that I have bought on iTunes on the TV in question, wont that be enough? I am kind of dense on this.

    And I suposse if I manually need to connect the Apple TV Box to my Windows Lap Top, the Little Black Box would need to be on ??

    What connection would I need to use for this restore ???

    Txs again.

    Thanxs for both links, I will do the restore right where the unit is later on today. And since I have 2 sets and possibly a 3rd one real soon, I found a Micro USB cable to regular USB on line for under $4.00 which I bought just in case in the future I might need one and I wont have to go out and pay a TON of money for one at The Apple Store.

    The Apple TV Restore went on for over 2 hrs, and when all was said and done, unfortunately. the lines did not change from the 720 to 1080.

    So....with that in mind...when I get in the mail the Micro USB I will try the restore directly to the iTunes in my Laptop.

    Txs again.
