What is the difference between 720p and 1080p on a 42 LCD tv?
High definition television uses one of three common formats - 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Any incoming signal will be delivered to a television in one of the three formats.
720p indicates that there are 720 lines in the image. The "p" means "progressive" and a complete image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second.
1080i shows that there are 1080 lines. The "i" stands for "interlaced" and the image is sent in two halves so a half image is sent 50 or 60 times each second but the full frame is sent only 25 or 30 times each second.
1080p is also made up with 1080 lines but the "p" shows that a full image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second.
Broadcasters use 720p or 1080i. These are both full HD signals. Although the 720 line image has a lower resolution, it is updated twice as fast. The data rate for 720p and 1080i is the same. Although 720p is less common than 1080i, it is used by broadcasters for some fast action content such as sports.
1080p updates the image at twice the rate of 1080 and therefore uses double the bandwidth. Broadcasters do not send out 1080p and it is restricted to local sources such as Bluray, games consoles etc.
The 1080p will produce the best picture. Read More
720p = 720 pixel of video quality 1080p = 1080 pixel of video quality 1080p image quality is better than 720p . Read More
1080p is going to have more screen resolution which means a finer amount of detail in the picture. Read More
A TV can't display a resolution higer then it's max. Second, let's understand that the two consoles playstation 3 and xbox 360 both sends a true 720P signal. 1080P is actually a upconverted signal of 720P, so after knowing this, do we still want 1080P from our consoles? Read More
"The 720p means it shows 720 lines across the screen concurrently every 60 seconds, this leads to a resolution of 1280x720. Naturally, the 1080p shows 1080 lines, producing a resolution of 1920x1080. The 720p is more common than the 1080p when watching regular TV, it is usually preferable for sporting events. Basically, the 1080 produces a better resolution than the 720, showing more detail."

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. Read More

The PS3 will upscale to 1080P if the system is set to upscale. You will not get 1080p you will get 720P upscaled to 1080P. I find that DVDs movies are better on the upscaled format, but they are not of the quality of Blu Ray. Read More
It is possible for the PS3 to upscale a 720p TV to 1080p quality. This is because the PS3 offers a built-in setting that can be turned off and on. Read More

Technically yes, because it's lots better than regular broadcast TV, but it isn't quite as good as 1080p. However, I have recorded 720p video on my Flip Mino recorder and played it back on my 1080p HDTV. I really can't see much difference. Read More

HD televisions are capable to displaying several HD formats. The most common are 1080i, 1080p and 720p. All HD signals will be in one of those three formats and the television will automatically accept and display any of the formats. The on screen report that the display is running at 720p is simply an indication that the incoming signal is in that format. Change the incoming signal to 1080 and the status will change to… Read More
1080p is a higher resolution than 720p but it's not a format that is broadcast at present. Because it has a higher resolution, it also requires twice the bandwidth to deliver the signal. 1080p is largely restricted to local sources such as Bluray discs and game consoles. Read More
1080i is the highest output Read More
HDTV is broadcast in two formats: 720p and 1080i. When your 1080p set gets these signals it has to convert them to 1080p. With 720p it scales the image to 1080p while with 1080i it deinterlaces the image. Current TVs are very good at this and so you wind up with the full 1080 lines of resolution in the end. If your 1080p is displaying 1080i on screen, it just means that is the signal… Read More

Most smaller tv's are 720P and will convert 1080i , 1080P to 720P. Native resolution is the resolution the tv is desinged to work at. The reason for this is , at viewing distance you will not see any difference. The reason is, the resolution of the screen and resolving power of the eye can only do so much. Check the owners manual for the resolution of the TV screen. Read More

In almost all instances the two screen types* will be defined as "720" and "1080" which denotes either 720 horizontal lines of resolution or 1080. The more pixels there are the higher quality the picture will be, so a television with 1080p will have a higher resolution than a television with 720p. The letter "p" means "progressive" which provides a higher resolution than if you see the letter "i" which means "interlaced". If you have… Read More

The Xbox 360 games are actually 720p however they are up-scaled to 1080p on the Xbox thus they are not native 1080p games. The PS3 does run games at a native 1080p though in some cases that can be to much for the hardware of the PS3 and it can cause lag. Read More

It should change by itself if you are getting a 1080 program. UNLESS you are using a Satellite decoder box.
