Default Why no 1080P?

My FIOS Box delivers 720P but no 1080P.

I have a 1080P receiver and would like to utilize the capabilities.

None of the stations/channels broadcast show or movies in 1080p, so not needed. Most are 1080i and a few are 720p (like ESPN, ABC and FOX). If you have a 1080p TV, I would just set the box to 1080i and let the TV, receiver deinterlace/scale the 1080i signal.

Default 1080p

Indeed. If you want 1080p, you'll need a Blu-ray player and some Blu-ray discs recorded at 1080p. Other than that, you'll have to get either DirecTV or DISH network, as they both usually have one or more PPV movies each month delivered to a DVR in 1080p/24 - but your HDTV must be capable of 1080p/24. Many HDTVs are only capable of displaying 1080p/60. Since you failed to give the make and model of your HDTV, I can only assume that it is 1080p/60, and the 1080p movies on the satellite systems would be delivered to you in 1080i.....so, the only way you would actually receive 1080p would be with a Blu-ray player.

But what's the difference between 1080i and 1080p?

Whoa! I just ordered Fios to switch from DirectTV. Are you saying that I won't be getting as high a resolution from Fios on channels such as HBO and Showtime? Now, I use an older box that only takes in a 1080i input and upscales to 1080p. Its a JVC 70" HD-ILA or HD-P70R1U.

Would I not see the difference be the two?

No the signal that you get will be the same - nobody broadcasts in 1080p - it is only output from blu-ray (hd-dvd) and on some vod/ downloaded video. If what you are watching is film based and not video you will not notice any difference after the signal is de-interlaced from 1080i to deliver a 1080p picture. Just an FYI - the picture is not upscaled from 1080i to 1080p it is de-interlaced (the resolution is the same)

Just a note... video can be frame based just like film so it would have the same outcome as film. The difference is being field based or frame based, not video or film.

The difference is the "i" stands for interlaced and the "p" stands for progressive. Interlacing means the video signal is sent in alternating lines on the TV. Progressive means the video signal is sent over every line. Progressive is a better picture.

Most people aren't going to notice the difference between the two on smaller TVs.

Quake FYI, 1080pSf works in a video production house and certainly knows. I believe he was asking what the op thought the diff he would be seeing as frame based 1080i once deinterlaced gives the same image as 1080p.

Thanks Joe,
But as jkkyler stated I do understand it quite well and jkkyler is correct that I was asking if the OP understood it. So Joe let me ask you this why do you think progressive gives a better picture?

One thing I can tell you is Verizons FIOS TV is not as good as comcraps HD just comparing the nightly news on NBC/HD I see a huge difference no dandruff on the suit and the pleats on the suit are washed out on verizons unit. Everything on FIOS seems a bit more blurry and less detail im not talking about recordings im talking about live TV its less in PQ. The info says its 1080i but clearly there is a difference between comrap 1080i and verizon 1080i.

OC , You may be the first person to ever say that ANY CABLE CO has a better HD picture quality than FiOS. It is absolutely not true. Stop repeating the same exact thing in every thread. Saying it 100 times wont make it true. You need to sample something more than the news, check your TV/ STB settings.
