Ok im not having any problems but just want to clarify this thought. The HDMI input of the sim2 can not except a 480i/576i signal because the HDMI input of the PJ requires a prog scan signal. So how the heck then does it display 1080i. is the 1080i signal sent out as progressive from the dvd player as 540p, which in turn if my display was native 1080i would be converted back to 1080i. so does the sim2 see it as a progressive signal at the lower resolution of 540p then upconvert it to 720p.?? or what??
