Your tv will only play whatever the highest resolution your tv is capable of. It will play a 1080 movie from the camera only it will downconvert the movie to 720p which will still give you a great picture. It is no different than watching a tv program broadcast in 1080i. Your tv downconverts that signal to 720p.
I realise this should be easy to answer but having googled it I am none the wiser
I have a samsung 720p lcd tv and am now looking to buy a HD camcorder
My question is will my tv play full HD recordings>
Thanks in advance
