1080i and 720p
Please help! I have a 46inch rear projection DLP. It's a 1280x720. The book says I can receive 1080i, so does Toshiba. But retailers tell me that it is the 720 that counts and not the 1280. I have read many articles on HD TV and they are not clear. If TVs scan at 720 then why don't they call them 720 sets instead of 1080i sets? And if they scan at 720 horizontal lines what are the 1080i verticle lines doing? And what about 24fps? Our TVs already deliver 50hertz. Newer models now boast 100hertz. I know about full HD 1920x1080p but as we cannot receive this from Sky etc. I am not bothered by it. Can someone please explain? By the way, no matter what they are called, I have an absolutely stunning HD picture on my Toshiba. Paul Dardis.
