    Well I just got a new DVD player that can play either 480p or 1080i on my Toshiba CW34X92 HDTV-Ready TV. I was wondering which one is the best mode?

    Well I know my HDTV Ready TV plays 480P, 480i, and 1080i. When I switch between 1080i and 480p on my DVD player, you can tell a difference. Not really a HUGE, this one is better than the other, difference, but it's different. In 1080i, it seems a little less "colorful" yet "realistic." In 480p, it's colorful but it looks like a normal DVD.
