It should be, in my opinion. The `I' for interlaced and the `P' for progressive really denotes the method with which the TV displays the picture.

Is a 1080i TV compatible with 1080p cable?

Most modern LCD/Plasma TV's are capable of receiving and displaying 720i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. Therefore your TV, if it can receive 1080i, should be quite happy with a 1080p signal.

Do satellite TV companies offer 1080p signal in the US?

As of summer 2008, all satellite and cable companies in the US transmit only 1080i digital signal. When a cable or satellite service is used, there is no advantage of 1080p TV set over 1080i TV set. However 1080p sets usually come with some other more advanced specifications, which may make the image higher quality. Cable and satellite companies do not intend to upgrade the 1080i signal to 1080p in the near future, since this would involve high investment outlays and greater broadband capacity in their network. 1080p TV sets can fully utilize their potential when blue ray discs are played from DVD players.

Why is your 1080p television showing 1080i?

It's to do with the resolution. The 1080 identifies the number of lines that create the image, so 1080p and 1080i have the same number of lines. The letter stands for the type scan the TV uses. The P stands for progressive and the I stands for interlaced. Progressive will process the image twice as fast as interlaced and therefore produces better colour and clarity.

Do 1080p TV sets convert 1080i signal to 1080p format?

All LCD displays use progressive scanning, namely the whole frame is built up line by line rather than odd lines followed by even lines. Therefore, by default, 1080i will be converted to 1080p, but at a frame rate of 25Hz or 29.97Hz. 1080p sets take 1080i cable or satellite signal and convert (deinterlace) it, creating a progressive scan, meaning the picture is painted from the top to the bottom line (there are 1080 such horizontal lines) in a single pass, and this process (in the US) happens 60 times per second. 1080p is normally run at 50Hz (Europe) or 59.94Hz (North America). 1080i is normally half that frequency. Even if the signal is converted from 1080i to 1080p, there is no additional picture information and therefore, little is gained by the conversion. If the television actually does the conversion, it is worth doing a comparison between converted and unconverted to see which produces the most pleasing results.
