But the thing is, because it only accepts up to 1050 via VGA, and only accepts 1080i over component, won't the TV just be upconverting the signal either way anyway? It can only receive true 1080p input via the HDMI cable.
I'm nervous that because it only accepts up to 1050 via VGA that I'm going to get that awful half-inch black border all around the screen if I hook it up by VGA, which is going to drive me nuts.
Anyway, the TV should be coming in next week, and I already have the MS component cable, so I'll pick up an MS VGA cable and see if there's an appreciable difference in PQ.
In response to the above poster, how can I tell if the picture I'm getting by VGA is 1080p or not? I know for a fact that the VGA jack doesn't accept 1080p input - I just assumed it would get whatever signal came in, deinterlace it or do whatever it will do to it, and then upconvert it to 1080p when the time comes to render a picture. Is that wrong?
In the meantime, though, if anyone else has some thoughts, of course we'd love to hear them.
