You will notice PQ differences with the 1080p versus 1080i. Your an early adopter so you must be patient. You have to wait until 1080p grows in popularity. Eventually broadcasters will use it, but I can't tell you when.RCinFLA said:I notice there are no transmissions of 1080p (progressive scan), only 1080i.
Is a TV that does 1080p doing the scan sequence on its own frame buffer, meaning there is no difference in the transmitted information content, only the ways the TV presents it?
My understanding (or not) is there can be some motion shift (feathering, combing, line twitter, flicker) in the two interlaced scans and the progressive scan avoids this by presenting a frame as a film projector does. This would seem to need some interpolation smarts in the receiver and a faster scan rate to turn an "i" into a "p" scan sequence.
