Upscale to 1080p or 1080i

Hello, I have a Sharp Aquos television that supports 1080p through HDMI and component or VGA. I have an xbox 360 that will upscale my DVDs through VGA or HDMI. I want to know which quality of upscale is better. Should I upscale my DVDs to 1080i or 1080p?

1080p is better quality compared to 1080i. Usually component can only go up to 1080i though.

It certainly would be easy to compare.

So try it; and use which look better to you. My guess would be the 1080p.

you shouldnt see any diffrents bettween 1080i and 1080p, if you set the output to 1080i the TV will turn it back to 1080p anyways.

That isn't necessarily true Gabe...

In reply to: well

If the TV does not have good processing then 1080i will not look the same as if you just fed the TV the 1080p signal.
