What you may have not read is that almost all 1080p players will also output in 1080i and other formats. In other words, it will play.
I have an older Mitsubishi projection tv model WS-65713. It says it will do 480, 480p, 1080i inputs. I'm really not up on all the High Def stuff standards now so I need some help. There is what appears to be an HDMI connection on the back of the set that is called "Monitor Link" by Mitsubishi. It says it can be used as a DVI-HD input.
My question is can I play 1080P sources on this tv such as blue ray? If not is there some way of converting the 1080P signals to 1080i for viewing. What sources put out 1080i signals that I can view? Can anyone help me out here?
