    I have a Panasonic AE500 which has a native resolution of 1280x720. In the manual it says it can display 1080i, which it says will display 1920x1080 dots.

    My question is: can it actually display 1920x1080 on screen, or does it just display a 1080i signal as 1280x720?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    No the image is rescaled to 1280x720.... most big plasma screens that do 1080p are only 1024x720, its no big deal. How big is your screen?

    Thanks for clearing that up for me :)

    That's a bit cheeky of them to word it like that then. Saying it displays 1920x1080 dots, but not actually on the screen.

    Screen is 2m diagonal 16:9. I sit about 3m away. I'm not worried about it really but I just wanted to know if I would get any benefit from a 1080i source over 720p.

    Do you know if it will display a 1080i signal as 720p or will it be interlaced still?
