On point one, he WAS. That is why I included his quote where he stated "1080p" to avoid a immediate denial.
On point two, you have "accidentally" glazed over the majority of the TVs that accpet 1080i, but not 1080p. And the sets that accept 1080i mostly deinterlace them to 1080p, before display at their native panel, which could be 720p, 768p, 1080p or a host of resolutions.
And finally, re: "though obviously it will be interlaced if the TV can't accpet 1080p", there are virtually Zero set on the market today that will display interlaced 1080i output, since they are mostly based on progressive display mechanisms today.

Thank you, Steve - that is exactly the issue here and the reason why I have made it a point to inform buyers about this.
I think it is in very poor taste (and possibly worse, legally) the way that this information has been made "not easily available" to the buyers...
