    Noticed there are still quite a few LCD panels coming out with 1366x768 panels. What will these do with 720p HDTV? Will they run them in a little box with bars around all four sides, or scale the picture up? It seems crazy to digitally transmit via satellite, send digitally via HMDI, to a digital panel, and then have to scale up by 48 pixels (a tiny percentage).

    Is there any chance that LCD panels will harmonise to 1280x720? What about plasma? DLP/Front projector chips?

    If they don't harmonise, should the lack of a tru 1280x720 panel influence your purchasing decision? I.e will it be noticable to mere mortals?

    i think most scale up, but the philips with 1366x768 does put black bars around a 720p image, maybe others do?
