The question is how badly is it compressed? They can put it into 1080p just to "say" it's better, but if it's just a 720p source video upscaled and compressed it's not going to look any better.

I can only view the 1080P in 1080i since they are beta testing it on Directv and for some reason some people with 1080P 24 capable tvs can't view it correctly (like mine). It looks damn good in 1080i though.
Some others say they can watch it in 1080P and it looks wonderful.
It is real 1080P not an upconvert

Over on the DBS Talk forum they are saying the 1080P 24 file you are downloading doesn't take up anymore space and maybe a little less than the regular 1080i (30 or 60?) that is normally sent out.

1080i and 1080p are virtually equivalent when comparing bandwidth use and media size. 1080i=530scanlines X 60fps. 1080p=1080scanlines x 30fps. Both work out to the same amount of data needed for 1sec of play.

Yep and they are sending out 1080P 24 so it's even less.
