1080i is both detectable and displayed, but it is not truly 1080i - the screen interpolates based on the 1080i signal. It looks good, but as I mentioned I found it produced deinterlacing artifacts (e.g. combing). This drove me up the wall.

I am using the Input button on the TV remote to select Input-2, which corresponds with the s-video input, but nothing is displayed.
Two other observations. First, I scanned for channels and viewed a few - audio was fine. Then somehow the audio mode seemed to switch to mono, and all I heard was static, no matter what setting I changed. The only thing that fixed it was to reset the TV to the factory settings (for everything).
Second, channel changing is slow. If I push channel up or down, I have to wait for that channel to appear before I can switch to the next channel. Is this normal for folks using the internal tuner instead of a cable box?
Thanks for your help.
I was able to get the s-video output from my laptop to display on my Sharp, but the PQ was not very good. Low resolution.
Channel changing is aggravatingly slow. The Samsung I bought to replace has a short delay, but much less than the Sharp.

Please advise your set's performance so far, if you have experienced the robotic sound issue on your Samsung, either OTA or cable QAM. If Samsung has resolved the robo sound problem, I still have time to make an exchange.
Also, is your panel an 'S' type, or 'A' or 'C'
Thanks for you feedback.
I have an A panel Samsung, and it looks great. No robotic sound issues, I use OTA. Overall, liking the Samsung so much more, couple of options on the Sharp I liked better but overall options for the Samsung superior.
I tried giving the sharp a good chance, and it fell short. If it was my only option I'd be satisfied, but knowing that there are better ones I'd suggest going with a Samsung instead.
