Im sorry but thats all technical jargon to me, can you explain in laymans terms please. At the moment I've selected 1080i on my bluray player but to be honest I don't know what it means, only im kind of guessing that its a better quality of picture :|

What TV do you have?

1080p is better than 1080i

But if your TV is only 720p then all of this is epidemic

In an interlaced signal, every 'field' that is sent to the TV from the source contains only half of the image information. The first 'field' will contain all the information for the odd number rows of pixels, and the second 'field' will contain the information for the even rows. Your TV will then wait for 2 'fields' to be recieved, combine them (to get the information for _all_ rows of pixels on the TV) and then display the complete 'frame'.

In a progessive signal, each 'field' is actually a full 'frame'. so there is no need for the TV to wait for the second 'field' to arrive, it already has the information for every row of pixels.

In reality, there is very little difference between them. The deinterlacing process will happen so fast that you usually won't notice any degradation, especially if your TV is a reputable brand.

laymans terms: if you imagine your screen made up of lots of dots (which it is). Interlaced (1080i) displays the image on every other line and misses a line each time. This is too small to see but generally the picture quality isn't as good as 1080p.

Progressive (1080p) displays the full image per frame on every line of dots giving a better quality image.

I guess it's daft making an 'in' joke on a forum that the only person who would understand it will never see!

Can i see a pic of your room? i wana see how it looks
#24
I have my internet connected in my room (wireless router) but it seems I need a cable to enable me to connect it to my TV (samsung lec 650 series) which is in my living room, shouldn't my wireless router connect to my TV automatically as it connects to my daughters' laptop wirelessly? into her room. talking about confused! the distance from my room where router is and living room where my tv is a wee bit away, for a cable anyway!
#25
The laptop will have wireless built in, but the tv won't.

Ahh right! god i'm useless at this technology stuff
So what cable would I need, although it would have to be really long and unseen :|
#27
Is this where some sort of wireless dongle would come in that I plug into my tv?

the TV should have all share well the 46"" version does so refer to the TV manual it will tell you how to setup wireless / or LAN you just need cat5e cable for LAN .

there has also been a firmware updated in feb 2011 Tv firmware

you need to triple check you got the same TV though or use your TV model on their support site to find anything you need to do

Get someone else to confirm this is the wifi adapter you need or search for a cheaper alternative on av forum
