About the only ones that do in your price range are rear projecton CRT HDTVs.
Most digital TVs have a native resoultion, most Plasmas are 1280x720. What they do is scan convert the other formats to 1280x720 and then display it.
Some of the DLPs will do 1080i native.
The best thing to do is go to the manufactures web site and get the specs.
Here is a good link that may be helpfull. John

well i check on every manufacturer site and they say they support all four different definitions but it doesnt say it will display all. Im looking for something that will support all definitions not just with my cable channels but also with the xbox 360 . I know fox supports 720p and all other channels do 1080i, so i dont want to buy something that only displays 1080i but no 720p

ABC is 720 also.
Did you understand the other post?? Go to the link and read???
What is meant by supports is it will display thoes resolutions. But it will ONLY display them at the highest resoultion of the TV.
So a plasma with 1280x720 as it's native format. Will down scan/convert 1080i to 1280x720p and then display it.
So ABC which is 720p will be displayed as is.
NBC which is 1080i will be down coverted and displaied as 720p. John

I believe westinghouse has a 1920X 1080 lcd for around 2500. Should be an ok tv and probably can get it at best buy or costco.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
