Toshiba 1080p only accepts 1080i

I have a toshiba 72inch cinema series. I am a dealer so I get them close to cost and I am wondering if I should sell it. My question is with a blue ray player that can output 1080p content would a tv that accepts a 1080p signal actually look better.

Difference won't be noticeable IMO.

i agree with above. i mean if it is easy for you to move (sell) and you want somethin new, its your call.

As long as the TV has a decent deinterlacer, a 1080i input signal displayed as 1080p would still be impressive.

Not so easy to sell. 50-62 no problem but at 72 there are not too many people as crazy as me out there.

Well at 72" it must have cost a pretty penny...still an image at that size is awesome for an RPTV. I have a front projector that produces a 102" image so I can relate to your craziness.:)

1080p is going to look better than 720p or 1080i. The thing with 1080p is that there will probably never be any 1080p OTA broadcasts. From what I have read only Blu-Ray DVD will give us 1080p.

LCD, LCOS, Plasma, DLP's all display progressively. Bluray will be mainly for movies at this point. A 1080i signal is displayed at 1080p/30fps on these sets. Movies are at 24fps. So let's say you have an HDTV that accepts a 1080p signal. Let's further say it can display at 1080p/60fps. What will be the difference in the display from the 1080i HDTV--answer--NONE. Your most limiting framerate is all you will ever see. So theoretically you can display a 24fps movie at 1 million frames per second over an HDTV, but in the end you will never see more than 24 different frames per sec. At this point, an HDTV that accepts a 1080p signal is much ado about nothing. 1080p broadcasts are years away, HDV cameras record in 1080i, so what is the point? And let's not forget, the only reason film seems fluid at 24 fps, is because our eyes and brain can't see individual frames much above 18 fps. That's why I repeatedly say--1080p/60--much ado about nothing.

60fps[/COLOR] I can't get this to highlight your selected framerate,But.......That is the basis of your argument? It appears that you create your own scenario to accomadate your point.A 1080p resolution on a large sized display is visually stunning. As this is a visual medium,the proof is in the viewing. All the hand picked scenarios in the world won't change that.Just my.02

you know,he might be right,its everybody else who hasn't got a clue,didn't look at all the available technology at the present time,keeps waiting for the NEXT greatest thing,putting that down for its initial shortcomings,etc.etc.etc.Hindsight is always 20/20,it also always has the same view,up the other dogs _ _ _ .It reminds me of a guy at the club who,everytime I,or anybody else, shows up with a new car,wants to tell you about any shortcomings, real or imagined,that said car might or might not have.He has been driving the same old mini-van for six years I know.There's those who dare to tread and them that hang back and wait to tell you "I told you so",having never took a step.Just a slight rant after reading so many negative posts about EVERYTHING (especially HD-DVD)

My question is with a blue ray player that can output 1080p content would a tv that accepts a 1080p signal actually look better.It seems to me the answer to this(the original point in this thread) question,as put,is,given that all displays are set up the same(hook-up and calibration wise),YES.Maybe not to you or I,but hypothetically,Native resolution,no flipping up or down.Not getting into what framerate. It and contrast ratios I never discuss(regardless of what the human eye is capable of seeing in either case).Some eyes would swear they could tell the difference and,who knows. I can't tell the difference between component and HDMI on my set,but I'm sure there are people who swear they can. Who's to argue with what another sees or hears. We do it hear all the time.
