Hi, just wondering if bluray will show as well on a 768p tv or should i be looking at a 1080p tv. The Pioneer has hdmi 1.3 and is on sale and wondering if it would be a good choice to buy and pair with a bluray player. :)

Absofreeginlutely YES! Blu-Ray and Pioneer plasmas are a match made in heaven. Even the "lowly" 768p models. Remember, it is NOT all about pixel count! Contrast, black-levels, video processing, and accurate colors are extremely important for overall image quality.

Dont get sucked into the 1080p hype.... its NOT the end-all in life that some make it out to be.

My 5080 & Blu-ray combine to make a fabulous video image that would make most 1080p TV owners wondering why their setup doesnt look as good. Period! :banana:

I own both and here are some pictures of the pure beauty that is Pioneer meets BluRay:

Remember: 1080p is largely hype because at the average distances people sit from their HDTVs. [I set 8' from mine]. All the studies prove people can't tell the different based on how far they sit from large screens [40" and above], and at smaller sizes 720p its insanely costly and again people sit to far to see the difference [32" and below]. So why even have 1080p? Well it does make text look sharper and if your very close the picture should look sharper as well, but really the push for 1080p was a great economic choice for LCD makers to try and trump plasma temporarily and keep costs high longer [along with profits].

Thanks, do any of you use the OTA function (antenna), scanning will bring in some digital channels from where the antenna is aiming, if it misses some and you turn the rotor can they be added

Joe,

Your pictures look like garbage. It's probably because I'm looking at them on an LCD:D
