Default 1080p question.. for anyone that is familiar with it

now im not sure if this is right. is 1080p/30 fps = to 1080i/60fps?

and the way i understand 1080p is ....the following.

Now no cable company feeds will be broadcasted in 1080p yet right?
most are 1080i.... or 720 p when its a sporting event.

1080p tvs are mostly used for like video game consoles , HD DVD players and BLUE ray dvd players correct (that support 1080p) ?

1080p is progressive / 1080i interlaced...they therefore render each frame in different fashion. Correct that there is no 1080p broadcast. Stations are entirely 1080i or 720p...they don't switch from one to the other due to sporting events or anything else.

A 1080p display doesn't mean that it should only be purchased if you're playing games or using one of the high def disc formats. 1080p still works for any 1080i/720p content.

If you are referring to fixed pixel displays such as LCDs, DLPs, plasmas, and LCoS...then whatever the native resolution is, that will always be what you see. Any input video signal that is either higher or lower in resolution will automatically be scaled to that native resolution. A 1080p will always display in 1080p.
