Sorry to sound dumb, but i'm a little confused.... There are a few plasma and LCD panels out there that have a panel with 1024x768 pixels on it. Yet it states that it is "HD Ready" My example is the Panny TH42pv50. i understand that if the signal is 720p it could cope, but how would it be able to display a 1080i signal with only 1024 horizontal pixels??? Thanks 4 your help!!
