    1080i/720p

    I have not gone full 1080p yet. What is the best format to use with Blu-Ray, 1080i or 720p. Also I assume the same would apply DISH Network or anything else showing HD.

    Re: 1080i/720p

    probably 720p. Check them both out and see. That's the true test.

    and you will see no benefit from 1080p in any TV source (OTA,Dish or cable) since they are all 720p aside from a very small amount of VOD programming (which likely didn't originate as 1080p in the first place).

    Re: 1080i/720p

    on a technical note, you don't have the resolution conversion factor going from 1080p (which your blu-ray player will be handling) to 1080i vs downconverting a 1080p signal to 720p.

    Again like you said, it comes down to trying both signals to see what looks best.

    You will not notice a difference either way.

    Re: 1080i/720p

    I had the same issue and chose to go with 720p. 1080i does give a little better resolution from my blu-ray, but 720P "refreshes" much faster, so on an LCD TV, especially for action scenes or sports, you won't experience as much "ghosting" with 720p.

    Like others have said, try it both ways, but make sure you do it with several scenarios (action scenes, nature shots, etc)

    Re: 1080i/720p

    Thanks all. From what I have researched online most say that 720p is the way to go.

    Re: 1080i/720p

    went to best buy yesterday and had a set up that included a 50" Samsung LED with a Klipsch surround system. A blueray disc (transformers on steroids) was playing and it was unbelievable. I don't think I could watch TV like that on a continual basis. I was exhausted and my eyes were dry due to them being wide open. I then proceeded to the "real" TV's. I coould not tell the difference between the 720 and the 1080p. The one option tha did make a difference was screen stabilization. This feature created a much more clear and crisp picture!!
