So if I buy a Toshiba 32HL84 that has a display resolution of 1280x720, does that mean it has to convert 1080i material from 1920x1080 to 1280x720 before it can be displayed? If so how is this done?


Are there any LCD TVs that can actually show 1920x1080? Many TVs say they can show 1080i material but seem to only have 1280x720 resolution in their specs.

It converts the signal from 1080i to it's native 720p resolution much like CRT's convert 720p to 1080i for display. LCD's by nature are progressive displays, they technically couldn't display 1080i, they'd have to support 1080p if they were 1920x1080 native which means any 1080i or 720p signal you sent the display would have to be upconverted first.


Check the flat panel display forum here for more flat panel information.
