In looking at the Wal-Mart ad on bfads.net, I see that this receiver has a resolution of 1024X768 pixels -- not quite 720p, as stated in the ad. Also, the price is $988 (5a.m to 11 a.m.).
The same ad has a 32 inch LCD for $598, which does have true 720p capability.


Family Room: Sony KDFE-55A20 55" LCD RPTV; Yamaha RX-V663 AVR. Paradigm speakers - Focus fronts, CC170 center, PDR-8 subwoofer, Atom surrounds, ADP rear center; TiVoRoamio Plus, LG BH200 HD DVD/Blu-ray player via HDMI to AVR
Bedroom: Vizio 42" 3D TV, Pioneer VSX-521-K AVR, Panasonic 3D DVD player, Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers, Roku 2 XD, TiVo Premiere, Insignia HD radio tuner, Toshiba HD DVD player
