hdtv compatibility 1080p?

1232 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ccotenj
For TV's that have a native resolution of 1366x768 (like my Panaxonic thpx77u)) I see in the description "HDTV Compatibility 1 480p/720p/1080i/1080p ". This just means that it accepts all incoming signals then scales down to 768p, right? (i.e. you can watch blu ray or hd-dvd which are 1080p).

Also, if I have my cable box set to 1080i does my TV scales down to 768p, or 768i?

My Sony CRT HDTV (34hs510) has a native resolution of 1080i. What is this in terms of xxx by xxx (i.e. 1366x768)?

Thats all for now!

yes, it will scale all incoming signals to it's native resolution...
Yes to 768i or yes to 768p?
why not just set all devices to output at 768p or 720p or whatever 7XXp it does?

"p"... fixed pixel displays are inherently progressive... it will scale whatever res it is getting to 768, and then deinterlace it (if it is interlaced) in order to display it...
