    this tv says it can display 1080i but the resolution of it is only 1366 x 768.

    I would of thought to display 1080i you would need 1920 x 1080 pixels.....i know its going to be something to do with interlacing but could someone enlighten me thanks.

    All/most fixed resolution TV's scale the picture to match the input resolution to the size & shape of the screen. It has nothing to do with interlacing but deinterlacing may also be performed since most fixed resolution TV's are inherintently progressive scan.

    If you can wait that long, that is!

    You can buy them right now, but they're only available on the bigger screen sizes (45" and such).

    johnny - spend a bit more time reading other threads here - you'll see a lot of discussion about 720p vs 1080i.
    Stephen Neal seems to have the best handle on what's what, so if you see any of his posts, read and digest.
    No disrepect to some of the other members, of course.

    I'll get me coat.

    My pet question is still - how do they display 1280x720 on a 1366x768 panel? Do they still have to scale up?

    If so, doesn't it make it kind of pointless having an all digital path for best image quality, then have to scale it up by a tiny percent?
