    1080p, it's going to have a resolution of 1920x1080? :eek:

    Or will it just scale it down?

    The Pioneer FDE, HDE and XDE series (43" and 50") are "truly" HD ready at 720p and 1080i.

    They have:

    - XGA screens with 768 rows of pixels (720 is minimum requirement)
    - HD input via component & HDMI
    - HD video formats are 1280 x 720 @ 50 and 60 Hz progressive (720p) AND
    1920 X 1080 @ 50 and 60 Hz interlaced (1080i)
    - The HDMI input supports HDCP

    This includes the current 5 series as well as the next 6 series. I hope this helps.

    The "1080p" in the link is a typo, 1080p displays are still some time away.

    I believe the new Pioneers can accept a 1080p signal (Blu-ray/HD DVD), which would then be scaled down to the native resolution. A native (60"?) 1080p Pioneer is rumoured for next year. :)
