Our viewing sitance varies from 8-12'. 1080i source material looks much better, 720p, similar, but cleaners and 480i is double washed (upconvert to 1080i by cable box and deinterlaced by the TV). We are right at the sweet spot.

So what you're saying is that 480p is better than a 1080i, and 1080i is better than 1080p, therefore 480p is better than 1080p??

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
