YES YOU CAN, WHEN BOTH FIELDS OF AN INTERLACED SIGNAL ARE CAPTURED AND THEN DISPLAYED. This is a correct way of deinterlacing, in which the 2353H does and then downscales to fit the resoltuion of the TV.
I'm not gonna discuss this any further with you. Come to my house then so you can finally put this to rest. A 1920x1080i signal DOWNSCALED to 1366x768 yields better detail and SAME framerate as a 1280x720p signal. This is on my Samsung 2353H. Every TV is different, so if you have issues with 1080i, tough luck.
EVERY lcd and plasma are progressive by nature, so no matter what the signal, you will always get the native resolution of the TV set PROGRESSIVELY.
That means that on my small 2353H, I get 1366x768p NO MATTER WHAT.
Want to know WHEN I DO get interlacing artifacts? When I watch a standard DVD upconverted to 1080i by the XBox Elite via HDMI. In which the artifacts are caused by the 360, not the TV. NEVER have I had framerate issues.
60fps looks like 'video' or 'live tv'. No matter what resolution the signal, a 60fps signal STAYS 60fps.
On my ps3, a standard DVD upscaled to 1080i has NO interlacing issues.
So to review...
1920x1080 native OR upscaled video games (either ps3 or 360) have no visual artifacts or framerate loss (60fps stays 60fps or 30fps stays 30fps, etc.)
1920x1080i Blu-Ray or upconverted DVD's on my ps3 have no artifacts or framerate loss.
1920x1080i UPCONVERTED DVD's on my 360 HAVE interlacing artifacts but never framerate issues. I haven't tested HD-DVDs.
Don't argue with me on this.
If by framerate issues you mean COD4 (60fps) looking more like Halo 3 (30fps) when it comes to movement fluidity, you're incredibly incorrect.
