Just because the tv is 1080p doesnt mean your receiving the signal at 1080p.Most broadcasts are not 1080p.You have to find a program that is transmitting 1080p.

I had the same question right after I hooked my DirecTV up also. I learned the same thing you just did. I also learned 1080i looks pretty good.

I don't know what kind of phone you have but if you can download the DirecTV app do it. I use it all the time to record programs when I realize I'm not making it home before the program starts, usually a sports program. You can also record a program from a computer too. The one thing to remember when you record from your phone or computer you don't get the option to record over by X amount of time and we all know sports never end on time. I just record the program immediately following the program I'm recording.
