I hope this is in the right thread. My tv is only 1080i and I have a Blu Ray player. How much am I missing without 1080p? Thanks for any help

Not really no, if you have a 1080i CRT. Motion will look better than most 1080p flat panel sets anyway.

You are missing out on 1080/24p though, but that's not that big a deal.

IMO the difference between 1080i and p is negligible with sets under 40" or so. It also depends on how close you sit.

Main thing with a CRT is to get your calibrations, especially for geometry and overscan, set up so you are seeing the whole picture distortion-free.

Yeah if your happy with the size and you have a good tube, Sony or even Panasonic you're not missing much. In fact your display is probably better than the vast majority of LCDs.

Be a fan of displays, not companies or technologies!

Actually, a CRT is the WORST tech for resolution. Most CRT HDTVs will resolve somewhere between 800x600 and 1024x768 pixels cleanly, nowhere near 1280x720, much less 1920x1080.

It's toe-tappingly tragic!

Resolution is only one determinant of HDTV quality. Widescreen CRTs will output 1080 x 850 (approximately) in a 3x4 window. I forget what the extrapolated horizontal resolution is, I calculated it once and promptly forgot how to. It's around 1400 or so. But they will indeed resolve all pixels of a 720x1280 input.

Sony and Panasonic both made super high def tubes that would resolve full 1080x1920, but they're rare.

Only the Super Fine Pitch tubes will. A regular ol' 970 is 853x1080i or so. Other CRTs are even lower..

The 960 and 955 do 1400x1080i.

Current HT setup:

Samsung UN65F6300 65" LCD HDTV, Polk CS20 Center, 2x Polk Monitor 75T Fronts, 2x Polk TSI300 Backs, Polk PSW110 Subwoofer.
