My Samsung LN32a330J1D, manufactured May 2008, displays 1080p.
Im not looking a gift horse in the face(mouth, i know the expression) but when I select 1080p on my ps3 or I watch a blu ray its displaying in 1080p. the info on the set reads: 1920x1080.
Now when I set the ps3 to not display 1080p at all but 1080i only the display reads 1920x1080i on the xmb and in games but when watching blu rays it reads 1920x1080, no 'i'. Now when I get any other progressive signal it reads 1280x720 or XXXXx480. Is this clear? My set does 1080p, correct me if Im wrong, please.


when its set to 1080i it reads 1920x1080i, when set to 1080p it reads 1920x1080, WHICH IS 1080p. If a set cannot display a resolution, it would not. I have video of this........

if it scales it down why then when i select 1080p only the screen still says 1920x1080. no matter what i have selected the blu rays play at 1920x1080. if i play cod4 of any other 1080i game and have 1080i only selected it reads 1920x1080i. if i play the same games with 1080p only selected it reads 1920x1080. so with progressive signals, 480p or 720p there is no indication of 'p' after the resolution. but with all interlaced signals there is an 'i' after the resolution.


im a hopeful skeptic

Others are correct. You only have 1366x768 display CAPABILITIES. Your LCD is accepting the 1080p SIGNAL and then is scaling it down to match your set's capabilities. It's the same for me with my LCD projector. It can NOT display full hi def but it CAN scale down the incoming SIGNAL to one that can be displayed on my screen. Of course, information in the form of pixels is missing but since the display in only 720p, I never see the missing details. Still looks pretty good (but obviously not as good as a TRUE 1080p screen like my 37LG50).
