Which is better a 1080p or 1080i HDTV set?
A 1080p set has higher native resolution and supplied with 1080i (e.g., from some cable or satellite programs) or 1080p signal (e.g., from Blue-Ray discs) will provide sharper picture, especially visible on bigger sets (42-inch or more) and from up-close. 1080p sets are however way more expensive than 1080i ones. All flat panel HDTVs (i.e., plasma and LCD), as opposed to CRT tube sets, are inherently progressive in nature. For marketing reasons, however, some manufacturers promote 720p (p for progressive) HDTV as 1080i (i for interlaced), mainly to signal, I suppose, that it supports 1080i signal and to improve their sales. The so called '1080i HDTVs' take a 1080i signal and downconvert the picture to the 720p resolution. Additionally, they de-interlace the 1080i signal and display it in progressive scan mode but in 720p resolution. So, a 1080i TV set is in reality a 720p set, but many manufactures designated 720p sets as such as soon as 1080p sets came along. 1080p sets, on the other hand, take 1080i cable or satellite signal and only 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 happens 60 times per second (in the US). This means that same size HDTV sets designated as 720p and 1080i have identical native resolution of the display. Quality of the picture depends only in part from resolution, however, and according to some professionals the most important aspect of picture quality is contrast ratio, the second most important is color saturation, the third is color accuracy, and only the fourth is resolution.
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
What are the compatibilities of a Blu-ray disc playing on a Blu-ray player set to play in 1080i on a 1080i HDTV?

HDTV is the term for a range of television formats. The common formats in use today are 720p, 1080i and 1080p. There are other resolutions that can also be classed as HD but are not in use today. Each of the resolutions can be delivered at a variety of frame rates. 1080p is just one format in the HDTV class. It uses 1920 x 1080 pixels and the image is created by a single pass… Read More
Well, in my opinion 720p. But, technally speaking, 1080i is the better resloution. ---- The sharpness of picture will be as follows from the sharpest to the least sharp: # Watching 1080p signal on a 1080p TV set # Watching 1080i signal (e.g., on many cable programs) on a 1080p TV set # Watching 1080i signal on 1080i or 720p TV sets (see explanation below) # Watching 720p on any of the above sets All… Read More

People often confuse these broadcast signals with native resolution of the TV sets. All flat panel HDTVs (i.e., plasma and LCD), as opposed to CRT tube sets, are inherently progressive in nature.

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… Read More
1080p signal may not work on a 1080i TV set. You may not get a picture, but just a blank screen. And that blank screen will not let you undo the changes because you cannot see anything on the screen.

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

1080 vertical lines of resolution, but the i stands for interlaced, as opposed to p which stands for progressive. The difference is that interlaced updates odd lines, then even lines alternately. Progressive updates the entire image with each scan. If your TV set can display 1080i then it can also display 1080p (which transmits all the vertical lines at once) although the only media capable of a 1080p signal is a Blu-Ray disk. Read More

No, you can use a PlayStation 3 with a conventional TV (one that has a lower resolution than 720p or 1080i; those are the necessary resolutions for a television to be called high definition).

You can still use it, but it won't… Read More
