Post 120Hz @ 1080p ???

So I finally went out and purchased my second HDTV upgrade from 720p to 1080p. WAY BIG, killer, KICK @$$ differance!!! LG 47" 47LG70 1080p at 120Hz for $998 with a 3 year in home service warranty from Brandsmart USA.

The sales man talked me into buying this new high speed 120Hz TV. But NOTHING yet at least puts out at 120Hz. WTF (what the F***). First come to find out comcast only broadcast at 1080i. And even with the newest nvidia drivers, I can still only get 60Hz @ 1080p out of my GTX260.

So do I just sit and wait? Yea I'm happy with the new HDTV, but I have this big new toy but I can't see it work at full potential. Waiting for the rest of the world to catch up...lol

Is there something else I can do?

Don't worry about it because you will not get 1080p120 anytime soon. You might be able to get some 720p content that will run that fast, but the reason why you won't see 1080p at that speed is becuase of the bandwidth requirements. The only thing that could carry a signal like that is a dual link HDMI cable.
