It most certainly does. In fact, 720P and 1080I are it's native resolutions

That's not correct... it's native res'es are 1080i and 480p. Although it can accept a 720p signal, it's format converted for display.

WOW...for a minute there I thought they came up with a morphing tube technology that allowed 1080 and 720 to be native at the same time. :D Oh well...back to SciFi.

That's called a Multisync Monitor...

Yes, but not for consumer CRT TVs.

Nope, just for PC monitors... and a couple of presentation displays from Monivision. Virtually all TVs are monosync that only handle one hardware scanning frequency.

I'm assuming that's because of how expensive it would be to manufacture for 26" to 36" screens. If so, it's too bad that multisync technology hasn't been able to migrate down to consumer CRT TVs at an affordable price. It would address the issue so many people have with the various 1080i/720p HD networks.

And another solution is 1080p/60 displays...

I'm sorry, you're absolutely right, and I actually looked it up on Samsung's website before I posted that reply too! Sorry for the mis-information. Can you believe I actually own this TV as well!

Speaking of which, does anyone with this TV know if it's possible to make it display what resolution is currently displayed, i.e. this show is in 720p or this show is in 1080i?
