Yes! Today I was in a A/V store when they had a new Panasonic 36" Direct View 16:9 TV here in Dubai. When I got closer to the TV (it wasn't playing anything) I saw that "576p and 1080i" were written ON the TV! WOW! A TV that supports PAL progressive scan AND 1080i! The price of the TV with stand is $2,725 US. I don't think this TV is available in Europe though. Anyhow, this is good news for me!
