I'm looking atbuying a 42" plasma. Most of the ones I have looked at have a res of 852 x 480. Now they claim to handle 720p and 1080i. I realise that a TV will upscale and downscale to its native resolution. What I'm intersted in is (a) What resolution DVD's output at if the DVD player is prog scan compatible (I assume it'll be 480p?) (b) If a game console game can be run at 720p or 480p, then it'd be better to run at 480p as it'll downscale anyway and display exactly the same picture? (c) Would a sensible solution at this stage be to buy a plasma that does 720p at its resolution hence when 1080i is used more it'll not have to downscale so drastically and 480p content will just need to be upscaled? I have Ntl digital and have no idea what there future plans are for HDTV, I play a fair amount of console games on a US GameCube, a chipped Xbox and a PAL Playstation 2. I intend to used the chipped XBox as a prog scan dvd player. I've been told that the DVD player software can be set to output in 720p. I've also been told that dispaly that have a higher native res tend to have to upscal lower res images more and so can sometimes come out with a worse picture than a plasma that has a lower native res. Is this right? I think what I'm trying to ask is, am I going to be left with a dud if I buy a plasma that does 852 x 480 natively? My budget is under 2K. That'd have to include all the inputs I need (component, scart, svideo). Not bothered too much about a stand as I intend to wall mount. So far the LG RZ-42PX11 looks like a good bet, Currys are doing it for £1599 on their website and I've been to look at it in store (not the best connection though, usual case with Currys).
