I was under the impression that the XBR800 (current set I own and hate, check my posts on this forum) would do 720P and 1080i and not upconvert....oh well.
I'll be trying real hard in the next month to get my set replaced with the 910 from Circuit City, if it all falls through though if anyone wants to purchase the XBR800 from me I would sell the hunk of junk for dirt cheap, under a thousand. According to other posters on this forum, the stuff I'm experiencing (ugly splotches, streakes, vertical lines, etc. on the sides when on a white background) is normal (?) for that set. I can't put up with that crap from a product that is SUPPOSED to be excellent.
The 910 looks like it will be a great set....hopefully it won't suffer from the same problems the 800 has. I was under the impression that getting a tube tv over rear-projection would give me better blacks and whites, too bad my whites have blue splotches in them! Probably should have just stuck with my 10 year old 27 inch.
