I am relatively new to the whole HD DvD players and have a simple question. I was shopping in a store and saw their running commercial for how great Blu Ray DVDs looked as apposed to SD DVDs. It blew me away. I noticed however that the plasma and DVD player they were using were capable of hitting 1080p. I bought my plasma years ago and I am only capable of getting up to 1080i. "I" being the keyword here. My question is.. is there a noticeble increase in resolution from interlaced to progressive? Would my TV give that great a picture? I understand SD DVDs are 420, so that I should see a noticeble difference from what I have.. but will I lose a lot by not having a progressive scan TV?
I currently own a Panasonic TH-42PX77U I believe. If you look it up I think it says 1080p but mine was a lot older and I know only goes up to 1080i. Can anyone provide me with what I can expect? Even better if anyone has one of those cool side by side pictures of SD vs. 1080i vs. 1080p would be awesome.
Thanks in advance guys.
