Here is another "gotcha" for HDTV's...processing interlaced signals. There is a right way to do it and a wrong way. The right way is (of course) more expensive than the wrong way. But the wrong way only gives you 540p resolution from a 1080i source (that is less than 720p...ouch!). This guy did a test of 54 HDTV's to see which ones do it right and which ones do it wrong. The results are a bit surprising. Almost half the TV's failed. If you care about image quality from 1080i signals, then make sure you get a set that does interlacing the right way. I wish I could get an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray Video Essentials so I could test this myself.
