pjskel, there's certainly a difference in the deinterlacing process, and the vp50 can output that res (or just about any res) over analog but obviously not for HDCP sources
The panel does not support native res of [email protected] into its HDMI input. the closest resolution the panel supports is 720P, so yes the VP50 will have to be configured to output 720P because that is all the panel will support.
I hope that clears things up for you.
I suppose my question is really, Is it worth spending an extra £150 odd quid for the HDMI to Component HDCP stripper box + analog cables to feed the panel it's native res of 768P over component?
