Enough of this nonsense. Itâ€™s time to set the record straight, to clear up the air about what 1080p is and isnâ€™t.
First off, there is no 1080p HDTV transmission format. There is a 1080p/24 production format in wide use for prime time TV shows and some feature films. But these programs must be converted to 1080i/30 (thatâ€™s interlaced, not progressive scan) before airing on any terrestrial, satellite, or cable TV network."

In view of Mr. Putman's comment, which I completely agree with (along with his call to stop the nonsense), it's time for someone to set record straight. Someone said that Mr. Putman comments above are old news, that might be so, however they are still true, there is still no 1080p transmission format as of 4/20/2006.
So you can try to demonize that man call him all kinds of horrbile things but that won't do away with the facts that he has cited.
