    Hi

    Do You Set Your Hd Ready Tv's To 720p Or 1080i I Cant Really Notice Any Difference My Self. I Tested Prey Last Night For Example.

    I Have The Samsung Le32r41bd Maybe Upgrading To Bigger Screen In Future But Would Prob Still Have The 1388 X 768 Pixels.

    Do You Think It Makes A Differnce ?
    Any Examples ?

    And Do You Set It To 50hz Or 60 Hz Real Noob Question But Which Is Better

    Sorry To Be Pain Any Info Much Appreciated.

    The Sky engineer who fitted my HD box stated that 1080i was the better option and I have stuck with that - seems fine and dandy to me! :thumbsup:

    If I remember correctly Sky HD is output in 1080i so it would be better for Sky. However, in theory 720p is better for fast moving objects whereas 1080i is better for non fast moving objects. In reality I cannot tell on my TV. Let your eyes decide.

    Set it as near as possible to your screens native resolution. so in this case 720p.

    Wouldnt take anything a Sky *engineer* says seriously they really dont know anything.

    Just set it to what looks best to you. If you can't see any difference between the two, then just leaev it on the one it's on and foget about it. There's no right or wrong answer as it's your eyes that are seeing it.

    720p and 1080i are both output at 60hz on the 360 and you can't change it anyway when in hi-def settings. It's probably worth switching to SD and setting 60hz, then switching back to HD though. Some games get the hump if 50hz is set for SD and won't run.

    Alot of panels/displays do the old take 1080i scale down to 540p then upscale to your native res for eg 720p so your actually losing picture information. In real most cases you dont actually notice this tbh i cant really on my display and it does the 1080i>540p>720p so i just leave my 360 on 720p. Unless you have an external scaler of good quality ie lumagen etc then id just try to match the native res as close as possible.
