    Hi Ian,

    The Samsung will output 720p and 1080i signals from the DVI, but these are HDTV resolutions, not computer resolutions. A player such as the Momitsu V880 can output computer resolutions also, such as 1280x768 and 1024x768. Hope this helps.

    Hi Ian,

    It might accept 480p due to it's similarity to the computer resolution of 640x480. This is like the DVI input on my plasma, it will accept 480p, but not 576p. Hope this helps.

    My Thomson 27LCD happily accepts 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i over DVi from my Neustn MC500 network streamer

    480p, 720p and 1080i all output at 60hz from the Neuston. 576p comes in at 50hz. There's an option to output 1080i at 50hz from the Neuston but not over DVi so I've not tried it.

    Thanks! If you could answer one more question, will the Thompson cope with 720p/50? That would be good for upscaled PAL dvds (and future SKY HD from what I've read).

    Could you also say which model it is, or is there only one Thompson 26"?

    Thanks again
