Default 1080i de-interlacing question...

I posed this in the flat panel section, but couldn't get any answers. Granted I tacked it onto a similar post that was a few days old, but still no answers at all.

I'm waiting for the delivery of my new Panny 85U plasma. We've got AT&T U-verse, and it's set to display in 1080i. In Cnet's review of the 85U plasma line from Panasonic, they stated that it will deinterlace 1080i video perfectly, but that 1080i film did not.

I know this may seem like a really basic question, but TV is video right?? Since I'll watch BD's in 1080p with the new set, I know that's not an issue, and games in 720/1080p. DVD's will be upscaled to 1080p by the PS3, so when on earth would I come across a 1080i film signal??

If you put the PS3 in 1080P/24 mode and the TV at 48 Hz, you will see the flicker . . . It is not really a 1080i thing; its the 48Hz and 24 frame/sec thing . . .

Yeah, this particular model doesn't support 24p so I don't think that would be an issue.

I have never had a problem with my Panasonic de-interlacing anything, at least that I could notice and I am very critical of any aberrations in the picture.

I think this might have been thrown in there for owners of HD A1/A2/A3s and any other legacy system (doesn't those weird D/S-VHS do 1080i or some crap.)

Who knows, if Bmore's info is accurate, my Sony XBR4 sucks at interlacing too, which makes me happy I got all Progressive hardware.

I thought I heard that HD DVD was 1080i. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry in advance. I know how rabid you HD DVD fans are.

Yeah, mshulman mentioned that at one point, but my thinking on that is the PLAYER does the deinterlacing. I say that because the film itself is 1080p (most instances), but the player outputs it at 1080i, so to me, that would mean the player is taking the progressive data and splitting it to 1080i. The TV then just puts it back together. But I could have this thing COMPLETELY backwards.

Cool. I've got the same thread going in the HD Media section, and while I may be thick ( ), one guy is saying I should be more worried about the flicker associated with the 24p mode. It was the second time he commented on my lack of understanding that it would look bad.

I had to state again that the set doesn't have a 24p mode.

I honestly just want to know that when I'm watching TV it's going to look good. When I'm watching a BD, I want it to look good. And so on.

Mine looks great all of the time, no matter what I throw at it, no issues.
