I am sure the masterminds and gurus of H/T here on AVS can shed more light than I have seen or heard.


I was emailed an interesting article that for the most part says they are in fact... Equal! It all depends upon your device and eyes/vision. Since the information is/was shot filmed and or re-mastered to 1960x1080, the device(s) one uses either shows a: Progressive image or an interlaced image, but the image/information is in fact the same!

If this in fact true, please explain in the short and sweet version?

Or is it literally "subjective"?


And if I have a 1080p capable set and run a 1080p source: blu-ray or hddvd into a 1080i only capable receiver (Yam rx-v1600 by hdmi in order to get DDTrue, etc)) instead of straight into the set to get 1080p display (hdmi) and optical/dig coaxial to receiver for sound, am I short changing my setup?

Hope I verbalized that correctly...


Thanks!

I did a slight revamp to my setup (display, receiver, new blu-ray player) and I want to get the "most from it".

It seems the general media, retailer, etc state unequivocally that 1080p IS THE BEST...!

Essentially progressive scan is better because the "scan" is more natural to the naked eye. In all honesty, if i had a taste test between the two, you'd be hard pressed to tell them apart.

They are not equal. But, it is a question of whether you'll notice the difference, which depends on the size of your display, how close you sit, and the speed of movement on whatever you are watching. The closer you sit, the bigger the screen, the more you'll notice the difference.


There is a neat web page out there somewhere that shows based on your screen size how close you'll need to sit to notice the difference based on your screen size. http://myhometheater.homestead.com/v...alculator.html

You are asking if you should go for the better sound (DDTrue) vs. the better picture (1080p)? Hmm, that is tougher. First determine if you'd be able to tell the difference between 1080p and i. If you can't then the answer is obvious. Otherwise, it is up to your preference.


*** I think that the viewing distance calculators do not distinguish between 1080p & i, but I think that the bottom line remains, it depends on screen size and distance.
