LCD's

Recommended Posts

In my opinion, this is the best LCD TV on the market without stepping up to a 1080p capable tv, which, at the moment, is a waste of money because the only thing broadcast in 1080p would be the blu-ray disc player. Plus it's at a good price.

Hate to say it, but this is not correct. OTA HD broadcasts are not 1080p. The bandwidth required for 1080p is massive - more than can fit in an OTA broadcast channel, I am fairly sure. The best you can get OTA is 1080i, which is what CBS broadcasts in. Fox broadcasts in 720p. I do not know what ABC (my local station's signal is too weak for me to pick up) and NBC (1080i, I think?) broadcast in. My tuner up-converts all of it to 1080i anyways, so it doesn't really matter to me. As someone stated earlier, the only way to get 1080p is with either a Blu-Ray or HD DVD. Personally, I am in no hurry to upgrade my 1080i TV. I seriously doubt most people, if anyone, could really tell the difference between 1080i and 1080p anyway...

actually i am correct, over the air is the only way to get true 1080p content, there is no compression what so ever. every other format whether is cable satellite hd-dvd or blu-ray there is some form of compression, over the air 0 compression.

Okay, then, who is broadcasting in 1080p?

in my area PBS does, and well as a bunch of local channels that loop all kinds of content on 1080p.

I am sorry, but I seriously think you are mistaken. I know Wiki isn't always 100% correct, but please see here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1080p

A quote from the article there:

Even though various television networks in the world broadcast HDTV programming in 1080i and 720p, no 1080p broadcasting actually exists at this time. Material that has been digitized from a 35-mm film source is basically 1080p24 though, fit into 1080i50 or 1080i60 (progressive with segmented frames) and with proper 3:2 reversal deinterlacing, can be converted back into a true 1080p signal (see above explanation).

I think your local stations are broadcasting in 1080i and your tuner or TV are upconverting the signal to 1080p.
