on my 720P TV. I was looking to upgrade a my old Pioneer Receiver. I currently have a Blu Ray player and a Toshiba HD DVD player. I only use the optical connections for sounds as teh HDMI cables are hooked up to the TV. Will any of these new receivers be able to display 1080P picture even though my TV displays either 1080i/720P picture.

Finally will I gain anything by upgrading my Peioneed receiver for a new Elite VSX01 or the 1018 model or perhaps something else. Thank you ain advance. All this stuff can be a little overwhelming. I am just wondering if leaving everything connecting to the TV (HDMI) and using the optical calbe for sounds is the way to go. I am just not sure if I would be missing something otherwise. These are my only two sources being used requiring HDMI connections.

If your TV cannot accept 1080p, you don't want to send it 1080p. I am not sure what you are trying to do. Sounds like you can only send your TV 1080i or 720p.
As stated above. It is you display that determines the input resolutions it supports.
