1080p vs 720p

  1. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    What's better pq, a 720p plasma vs a 1080p led? I'll sit about 10 ft away. Watch TV movies sports. My son plays 1080p Wii U. I don't care about smart tv. I have a Apple TV. Will I notice a poorer picture on the 720p Samsung plasma over the 40" m series led or similar samsung led that is 1080p?

  3. PlayStation Area
    I've done my research as to which I should get for the ps4. There are very few answers with regard to this, and the opinions of people vary from site to site. I know the biggest drawback for people with plasmas was burn in, but that really isn't an issue unless I stick my tv on cnn for hours...

     Hey Guys,   I'm know I'm new.      I'm using Tversity Media Server.   I get Picture, but i get no sound.  Only on MKV HD files.      AVI's work fine.     I just got this box today.  Can anyone help me?      This box replaced my boxee which streamed everything with no issues.  ...
  5. Home Theater Gaming
    Is there going to be a huge difference on a TV that small? Not playing on getting a bigger one right now. 32" is a perfect size for me.
  6. HDTV Programming
    We are considering upping from our regular cable (non HD) to some HD package. I was wondering what the major providers are sending to our house? Cox advanced TV, Dish network, Direct TV are they 720p, 1080i, or 1080p?

    Hello all Very sorry for posting this here, but I really couldn't find a disk specific section I could post too, so was hoping this might be the best place as am ultimately looking to put disks to my NAS system so can stream, btw for any mods, please feel free to move to a proper section if...
  9. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hey All, This is my first post. Happy Easter! I am looking to upgrade from my little Mitsubishi XD50U which just pooped out on me, and had a question regarding quality and overall experience between two completely different projectors I am looking at. Specifically I would like to compare...
  10. Xbox Area
    Hi, I've visited many forums, posted a few threads here and there, but I'm somewhat hazy so as to the best possible resolution to enjoy X360 gaming. I also tried searching the AVS forums for this topic in particular, but turned up zilch. They say 720p native is far better than 1080p...
  11. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Just curious what the best value-for-dollar, inexpensive 720p projector is, and same in the 1080p category? 3D isn't important, ambient light minor - main issue is picture quality on a 100-130" screen? Definitely not just looking for the cheapest. If there's a piece of junk projector at $350...
  12. Video Processors
    My problem? 24Hz 1080p 3D movies can have MotionFlow enabled on my new Sony HX950. But 60Hz native 3D 720p games cannot. Even in non-Game modes, if the game is native 3D, no MotionFlow. No such issue for 2D games regardless of resolution. So I am looking for a device that can trick my TV into...
  13. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hi all, I need to buy a 32" or 37" LCD. I notice that all of the big name brands seem to be 720p at this size. If i'm watching a 1080i or 1080p source, will I notice the difference between a 720p or 1080p TV at this size?
  14. HDTV Technical
    Recently I say a viewing distance chart for 4K, 1080p , 720 and lower resolutions. However, it was based on premise that angular resolution of 60 pixels per degree is enough. So , I created one based on 200 ppd figure which seems to be a limit of what a person with great vision (visual acuity)...
  15. 3D Displays
    I asked this question in a couple of existing threads and was promptly ignored, so I have to start a new thread. What's better for gaming: full-res 720p or half-res 1080p? If you tried them, which one did you like better? I'm planning to buy the ST1080 head mounted display for 3D gaming and...
  16. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    First time post, first time taking the home theater plunge. I'm having difficulty deciding between two models... what makes this my situation unique is that one model is much older than the other. Planar PD7150 (released Aug 2006, original MSRP of $6k), I currently own a broken Planar...
  17. Home Theater Computers
    Obviously the answer is Blu-Ray, as the x264 in the MKV are taken from Blu-Ray as a source. The thing I want to know is how much of a difference is there? same as a retail DVD rip to a 1400mb xvid file for instance? Anyone done any direct comparisons? I ask as I haven't seen Blu-Ray but...

    In an effort to reduce the redundant topics that tend to clutter up this forum, we are starting this thread with an intention to "corral" the disussion of this particularly popular topic to this one location, as much as humanly possible. Above all else, the goal of this "sticky thread" is to...
