If you know the native resolution of your television, then you should set a discrete resolution and not rely on AUTO. In this case you will want to set the player to 1080p.

But there are 1080p TVs out there that tell the HDMI handshake their "preferred" resolution is 1080i! Apparently this is out of fear that if connected to a device that can not output 1080p (such as a cable TV box), they will end up getting something like 480p sent instead.
If you know your display accepts and displays 1080p, then you should set the Oppo to output 1080p.
Thank guys, I understand what you are saying. I usually do set mine to 1080P not Auto.
However I find that 1080i source blu-rays get converted to 1080P from the Oppo. I don't want to do that. I want the Oppo to play it like source direct, but upscale DVD to 1080P. I was wondering if Auto would do that.
At the moment I have the Oppo set on 1080P. My projector can do 1080P 24Hz.
I also have a Denon 1611 which I set on Source Direct because it has a crap scaler. If I get a 1080i blu-ray I stick it in that and it outputs 1080i. The same disc in the Oppo sends 1080P.
I just wish the Oppo could send HD disc as Source Direct and upscale DVD to 1080P. It would be the best of both worlds.
