1080i into 1080p TV = 1080p
1080p into 1080p TV = 1080p

No difference. You love eating buzzwords don't you? I wish knuckleheads who think like you lived closer to me. I love switching my XA2 output to 1080i and back to 1080p. No one has ever been able to tell one from the other because they are identical. Quit lapping up Sony's FullHD bull****.

Well actually I just don't buy that many movies. I've had a BR player ala the PS3 for a year but I only have like 6 movies for it, so 2 or 3 is quite a few movies to me.

You mean, Amazon has slightly more BD than HD-DVD that they list.

If your TV supports 3:2 reverse telcline, then it makes no difference. The player would output half the pixels at twice the rate, and your tv would reconstruct twice the pixels at half the rate.

Yeah inverse telecine is going to be done by either the player or your TV, and it will look the same regardless of which one does it. In this case the player doesn't do it, so your TV needs to do it. 3:2 pulldown compensation is a trivial feature to add to a TV, so even the cheaper ones should do it.

If neither your TV nor your player will deinterlace, and you have a 1080p fixed pixel display, then you are looking at 1920x540 rather than 1920x1080.

List *1* 1080p TV that doesn't deinterlace.

if I can get my hungover ass up in time, I'm going to Wal-Mart in the morning to get a few of thsoe discs and maybe even a second A2.

Even though it's POS that's only 1080i and, like, that's barely better than 480i. I mean, seriously.

I wasn't arguing against your statement, simply qualifying the quote.
