Hey, still kinda new to HDTVs and i was looking at getting this
http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...63&catid=24558


its the westy 42" 1080p monitor, so I know it doesn't have a tuner, it also says there is no video processor, my question, what does this mean, my xbox will output upto 1080p on hdmi dvi, vga, component so im happy about that, but what do i need a built in video processor for, is that upconverting stuff, cause if that is, my dvd player will(xbox 360) and tv, buying an hdtv terminal. so any help would be great.

The Westinghouse LVM line has no tuners, but it does have a video processor; A Genesys Faroudja chip that properly deinterlaces 1080i/60 content and upscales 480 and 720 content to the panel's native resolution.


1080i/60?


ok, I'm not that keen on the stuff but is there any video or stuff in 1080i/60 or is it even possible?

Something like 90% of the broadcast HD content is 1080i/60.

The full spec for the various HD display modes are:

720p/60

1080i/60

1080p/24

1080p/30

The last two digits are the number of transmitted fields. Which, for progressive modes, equals the frame size, but for interlaced modes its half the frame size.

This is necessary to distinguish between the three different 1080 signal formats. As is, nobody is actually broadcasting 1080p, so folks tend to drop the field rate descriptors. Long term, this will change. 1080p24 is going to be important over the next couple of years as 120Hz displays become common (120=5x24) as a way to eliminate the need for 2-3 inverse telecine (aka 3-2 pulldown) for movie content on digital displays.)


On some Westinghouse displays, the System Info menu pick will report 1080i content as 1920x540, because they are reporting field sizes not frame size. This is perfectly normal and appropriate. :)

okie dokie thanks for the explanation.. I thought that Hertz and Frames per second were in relationship to each other (meaning FPS couldn't be higher than the Hertz).. So I thought that 1080i/60 was 1080i/60 FPS or Hertz..
