I'm still pretty much a newbie when it comes to LCD's so be gentle. Got into an argument with friend. I told him the Sony V series was high on my list. He said that living in Belgium wasn't gonna guarantee me the best quality and proceeded to talk about maximum lines and all that and how it's dependent on the country itself. I told him that this would only be an issue when watching TV and not while playing games on Xbox 360 or watching a DVD. He also believed that watching a DVD movie on the Xbox 360 would produce an PQ very similar, if not entirely so, to standard CRT. He then told me that he was over at a friend once who showed him his beamer playing Soul Calibur 2 on the Xbox. He noticed two things. 720p was a huge letdown and produced an image similar to CRT, but 1080i looked incredibly amazing and felt like being there on the battlegrounds themselves. So now I've got some questions if that's Ok: 1) Can I expect a noticeable bump in image quality when playing a standard DVD film on the V series via my Xbox 360? And this obviously won't be 720p then, but what? 480p? 2) Is there a way, an absolutely horrendous way, of hooking up an Xbox 360 to an LCD that's gonna make a 720p signal look pretty much like regular CRT? 3) Will 1080i produce better results on beamers than 720p? 4) Connections-wise, and knowing I want to hook up next-gen consoles (Xbox360, PS3) as well as PC to my LCD, should I opt for Sony's V series or Phillips upcoming PF9830 range? Can't think of any more right now.
