    basically

    i = interlaced
    p = progressive

    progressive shows full 1080 pixels all the time
    interlaced only shows 540 horizontal pixels at any one time

    hope that makes sense

    OK thanks for clearing that up.

    so is 720p better than 1080i

    are cows better than goats?

    to me HD = HD
    and difference = negligable

    some people might disagree but let them, lol

    Well, Im going to get a PS3... So I want a good HDTV to go with that...

    The only REAL HD TV is one which offers 1080P. All others are pale imitators

    yes, goats milk taste like pee! although i suppose thats fine if your having it on sugar puffs cos they smell like pee anyway :-D

    I think PS3 outputs 1080P anyway?

    yes, it does... but doesnt that mean I would need a 1080p HDTV to get full potential of the PS3?

    Technically yes.

    I personally cannot see the difference between 720p and 1080P, But thats probably because i'm not looking close enough!!

    As technology advances, 1080P is future proof (Well so they say!)

    i always thought that sugar puffs smelt of sugar puffs. and that eating sugar puffs made pee smell like sugar puffs. i never actually thought/considered that sugar puffs in fact smell of pee to start with?

    nah they can't do. cause pee only has "that" smell after eating sugar puffs. so therefore:

    "that" smell == sugar puff smell

    sugar puff smell =/= pee smell

    .: pee + sugar puffs for breakfast == pee + "that" smell

    and theres me thinking i did a level maths for nothing :whistling:

    unless your telly is over 40" you won't see that much advantage for everyday use. For casual viewers the difference isn't even that important anyway.

    On the 360, there is noticeable clipping when I use 1080i...

    So, 720p suits me just fine.
