    Yes :)



    Natively it will do 720p (1280x720 progressive)
    It will do 1080i (1920x1080 interlaced) but obviously has to compress that a bit to fit on it's 1280x720 panel(s).
    Not sure on this, but I don't think it will do the forthcoming 1080p (this is likely to be the highest quality available from BluRay and HDVD players - although these will almost certainly also output at 720p and 1080i too). However if it can't do 1080p, it certainly wouldn't be alone in this - quite a lot of CE display devices can't do it either!
    TBH, with a 1280x720 panel, it's probably a bit of a moot point as to whether it can take a 1080p input - the signal will have to be scaled to 1280x720 in any case - the same as any other signal.
