No, and the picture is exceptional. Output from my XA1 1080i via HDMI to HDMI>DVI adapter to Sony 57" RP 1080i HDTV.
I'm waiting until:
1- 1080p TV's can actually actually accept 1080p input (yeah, I know there's a few; I mean commonly accept 1080p input)
2- They sort out HDMI - HDMI 1.1 is "dead"? I never went through numerous versions of HDCP compliant DVI. Software version upgrades are easy; hardware version upgrades mean more stuff for the landfill.
i'm watching it on a Sony KE32TS2, which has an 852x1024 interlaced ALIS plasma panel (1000:1 contrast ratio). It displays 1080i natively by cropping some of the lines from the top and bottom. Obviously i'm not getting the full resolution horizontally, and close up it shows the limitations of my screen (dotty blacks and aliasing due to the limited horizontal resolution), sat back it looks pretty good, better than any 720p LCD i've seen.

That's a tough one to answer. I think the toshiba definitely shows more detail but I like movies to be on a BIG screen. As of right now, I have it on the toshiba for the sole reason that my teenage kids can access it when they have friends over. I am really trying to wait until 2G comes out but I may just buy another one for the theater.
