It is always better to view native material. Conversion introduces artifacts.
|How bad do these artifacts get on 720p to 1080i if you are using a decent quality converter? primarily how good a job does the Pioneer Elite series do on this conversion?|

This is a good question and I wonder why most on this forum would recommend setting a model 6000 to display HD in 720p when the HBOHD source material is 1080i ?
Can 720p actually help a 1080i source since motion artifacts in the 1080i source cannot be eliminated ?
The horizontal resolution of 1080i is 1920 lines, right ? So when you convert it to 720p what happens to that horizontal resolution ? I would think that it stays at 1920 even though the 720p 16X9 standard calls for 1080 lines of horizontal resolution. So you wind up with 1920 X 720p !
Wouldn't it be common sense to just display the resolution of the native source ?
