    There are essentially two types of 1080p...those that convert to 1080p and those that actually accept a 1080p signal.

    Many "1080p" tv's won't actually accept a 1080p signal (such as that from a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD player). They will take a 720p or 1080i signal and then "upconvert" it to 1080p.

    Other 1080p tv's will actually accept the 1080p signal and display it properly.

    I believe this was a much more prevalent problem with the first generation of 1080p sets. I can't think of any of the second generation (e.g. this year's models) that do not accept 1080p inputs.

    I believe you are correct Seth. I was just trying to clarify the distinction. I'm sure there are some older 1080p sets still for sale in places.
