1. Set the box to 1080i. Watch a 1080i channel and a 720p channel for a while each while the box is set to 1080i.
2. Set the box to 720p. Watch a 1080i channel and a 720p channel for a while each while the box is set to 720p.
3. Decide whether #1 or #2 looks better to you.
I don't know whether it's possible to change the box's setting without shutting it off as one can with the DCH3416. I have a DCH3416 and I change it between 720p and 1080i per the resolution of the channel I'm watching and then let my TV take it from there, but that's just my preference.
Net: if the DCT3412 is like the DCH3416, no, there's sadly no pass-through setting; the box has to be told whether to put HD signals out at 1080i or 720p.
