    I'm confused, I' sorry, I'm a bit of a n00b, I ahve been doing so much reading still can't get it. You know the PV500, does the 37" support 1080i and does the 42" support it as well?

    I mean real 1080i, not just accepting it and scaling it down.

    The 42" definatley supports it as that is what i run my xbox at (running Xbox Media Center as a front end dashboard) and its rock solid.

    i would presume that the 37 is the same.

    Both TV's will support 1080i but they will have to scale the image to their native resolution . 768 for 42" & 720 for 37". The only display/TV that could display a 1080i signal without scaling would need a native vertical resolution of 1080 pixels, assuming you wanted it to be a 16:9 screen with square pixels it would need a 1920x1080 native res.

    Is it compatible errr yes ..Is it native res errr no!
    what are 1080 true native? well the option is one flat panel the 45" Sharp which to all reports is OK for 1080 but p poor for anything less and requires an external scaler to look average with SD material.
