I have a friend who just purchased the Sony KP-61HS30. I'm sure it is a beautiful tv, I haven't seen it yet. He's been telling me about it and he mentioned it does 720p. I'm sure he's wrong, but he's sure he's right. I need a second opinion though. Anyone care to weigh in? The tech specs for this tv don't mention 720p. I'm thinking it can handle a 720p signal and it just downconverts it to either 480p or 1080i...


I didn't really think there were a lot of Sony RPTV's (if any?) that did 720p at this price point.


First post by the way... long time lurker and dreamer about my own HT.
