Do some reading at this link.
There will NOT be any 1080p broadcast for many, many, many years, if ever!
Currently a 1080p set will cost $500~800 more than a 720p set.
The only 1080p source material will be on HD-DVD/Blue Ray DVDs and maybe some games, thats it.
Digital HDTVs have a native resoultion 720p, 1080i or now 1080p. They will rescale/deinterlace other video formats to that native respoultion.
A 720p set will upscale 480p DVDs to 720p and downscale 1080i/p to 720p.
A 1080p set will upscale 480p and 720p to 1080p and will deinterlace 1080i to 1080p.
If you have any more questions just ask . John
I have read that no one is broadcasting in 1080p and won't be for some time. Why 1080p, are the new tv's with 1080p upscaling the present signal to 1080p?
Does anyone know where i can find out more on 1080p?
