Do you mean the HDR-FOX V-FORMAT, or some setting on the analogue-to-HDMI converter?set to 1080p
The converter has a switch for 586l or 1080p. The first one I tried was cr*p, so returned it and found a different make, which is quite satisfactory -it’s only TV after allTo be picky, I wouldn't call that "solved". Bypassed, worked around... not solved.

I tried switching to analogue and there was less difference in PQ than I expected (for broadcast TV!), but with detailed comparison it is clear the analogue video is only 576i and the V-FORMAT for the HDMI output does not control the analogue video output (confirming what I expected). Unless the converter has a fancy upscaler built in, you might be better off setting the converter to 576i and letting the TV do the upscaling.
All said, this appears to be an acceptable work-around for those with buggered HDMI outputs and a collection of recordings to watch (or no desire to replace their HDR-FOX).
