my elite pioneer is the older one, 720p or 1080i, not sure which, but if i order a 1080p movie on dtv will it play on my pioneer?

I am pretty sure it will play but it won't be at the highest resolution.

I could be wrong, but I got the impression that a 1080p movie will NOT download UNLESS you have a 1080P/24 fps monitor. Your DTV "KNOWS" what your receiver will do.

Go into Setup, down to HD and in that sub menu, it will report what your monitor will support. Mine only shows 1080i.

my 3 dvrs have the 1080p movies downloaded onto it, regardless of what kind of tv it is attached to

I think IZZY is saying "when he selects the 1080P Resolution it (his HDHDVR) will say His monitor will NOT Display it. and said that way makes it a correct statement.

the Top movie Tab is downloaded over the Satelite and will play when selected on any 1080i only monitor. Also playing in true 1080P/24 on any TV that supports that your HR* will Display 720P light & 1080I light when showing a 1080P movie, Reason is there is NO 1080P Lite on any of the "Current" D* HD RECEIVERS at this time.

Hey Randy1, I have both PDP-6070 and PDP5070 and as long as you have the HD reciever connected via HDMI it should except a 1080P signal.

thanks...i am so excited about my new pro 141fd (monitor version of the 151)

one thing I am hoping is the blurring that occurs when the camera moves quickly, is better...

my 50 inch elite is about 4-5 yrs old, was the best of the best (other than runco I suppose) at the time, over $7000., but the motion issues do exist

hoping the new one is better - what is that called when you get the blurring/motion sickness I call it :D

What is 1080P lite? Is that another way of saying 1080I?
