It wasn't the fact that it was 1080p that was the letdown , it was the method used to get that 1080p to your screeen I have the feeling viewing a 1080 blu-ray or uncompressed OTA signa would have left you with a different feeling.

Imagine an mp3 at 40kbps and saying iMP# sucks and then hearing the same mp3 at 240kbps - much better - both mp3 but one is much better quality. Not exactly the same but you get the picture I hope.

i switched my resolution in directv menu form 108-i to 1080p and right away i noticed a difference. in fact i had to turn my color down 5 points. the picture is crisper. so i noticed a difference in 1080i and 1080p.

That is Direct tv's receiver internal processing engine (interlacer ) and has nothing to do with 1080i vs 1080p itself - everything you see on your tv is 1080p That is all it can display it is a FIXED PANEL display. The difference comes in where the conversion takes place - what you did was move it from your tv to the direct tv box which apparently did a btter job than your tv in your situation

all i know is since i installed my new yamaha rx-a1020 and used my hdmi cables through it i was able to click on the 1080p box in the direct tv menu. plus i first noticed i had to turn the color down on my tv. picture is a little richer. still cant use the resolution option on the front of the direct box to go to 1080p, only in the menu, under settings. my tv is a samsung 1080p led smart tv. so to me it seems that the yamaha rx-a1020 some how has enabled me to switch to 1080p in settings nut not on the genie front panel. and it is sharper. ive been told that the only 1080p your going to get from direct is pay per view.

The reason that option is now available is that your receiver is telling the direct tv box that it will accept a 1080p incoming signal - regardless of that fact (except for PPV as noted) direct tv broadcast is 1080i by checking the 1080p box you are having the 1080i signal de-interlaced in your direct box to 1080p and then passed along as 1080p, you could also choose to have the signal de-interlaced from 1080i to 1080p in your Yamaha receiver or to leave it intact as 1080i and have it de-interlaced in your tv. If done CORRECTLY/Perfectly there should not be a difference however not all de-interlacers are made to the same standards simialr to how not all upconverting chips yield equivalent results.
