Panel Resolution and Display Resolution

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have a Philips 42PF9830 LCD Tv for more than a year.Last week I bought a Sony Blu Ray player ( S500) but my Lcd only display in 1080i. I went through the manuel and figured out that Lcd has a panel resolution of 1920x1080p and a maksimum display resolution of 1920x1080i . I just could not understand what that means.Surely, I can not get a 1080p output.When I switched 1080p output on my player , my tv goes blank.

So, any of you guys know what is the diefference between those 2 . If the tv can not display 1080p , why is there such A term as panel resolution, what's the use? and finally do you think I need to buy a full 1080P HD to enjoy blu ray movies.Does it make such difference btw 1080i and 1080p.

Sorry for many questions, thanks in advance.

1080p BD is 1920x1080. 1080i is 1920x1080.

Your TV can display all of the resolution of the BD player but your TV (obviously) cannot accept the 1080p signal ... only the 1080i signal.

It is not a big deal on your TV. I doubt very much that you will see the very small difference.

yeah thanks for reply, that's what I thought so, many say "no visible difference at all" ..Anyway I'll check the difference in a local philips store..by the way, a sales rep told me that , "p" stands for pixel when talking about panel resolution where as it stands for progressive in display resolution..I don't know if it's true or not..

In resolution terms, P=progressive scan, I=interlaced. The difference is how the picture is "drawn" on the screen and our eyes can't really tell the difference. I have the same situation as you with a 1080p tv which can only accept 1080i thru my blu ray and the picture is beautiful. Don't worry about it, no big deal.
