    when i watch a 1080i movie, does my desktop resolution have to be in 1920,1080 or can i just leave it in 1280,720? would there be any difference in the quality?

    Why not try it and see? What movies are in 1080i? I would have thought that 720p is a better format for movies, since they are not shot using interlaced TV cameras.

    The AE700s native resolution is 1280x720.

    If your PC is set to 1920x1080, then the AE700 will scale the image to fit the panel. If your PC is set to 1280x720 then your PC will scale the image bypassing the AE700s scaler.

    I'd prefer to let the PC scale the image. The scaler in my AE100 is pretty poor. Try both and see which you prefer.

    Either way you will only see 1280x700 on screen.

    1080i films are comparatively easy to deinterlace correctly to 1080p. Stateside material has 3:2 pulldown in it exactly the same way as standard def material and is readily identifiable as such by a half decent deinterlacer.

    720p (if its from the states) is likely to be running at 30fps with some sort of repeat frame pulldown which isn't as easily detected by deinterlacers as they are cued by the high frequency pattern indicative of mismatched fields.

    1080i is essentially 1080p with only the broadcast bandwidth requirements of 1080i.
    720p is really a replacement for material that would normally have been shot in fields ( news , sports etc) and would consequently have had no easy "perfect" deinterlace possibility.
