Is there such a thing? I'm asking about native scan rates, not bringing down from 1080i or converting from 480p, etc. Is 720p the gold standard as far as affordable display devices are concerned? HDTV is only broadcast is 1080i, 720p and some in 480i (Fox?). DVD's are 480p for the most part, right? What I'm really asking is ff I dropped $2500 on the latest Hitachi or Panasonic (they only do 1080i or 480p generally) am I missing out? Should I spend the extra on Sony LCD technology or Samsung DLP? Should I go FrontProj? This is part of the larger dilemma of having to put together an everyday use Home Theatre for $5000. Fortunately I already have 5.1 surround, so I just need the display device, DVD player, HDTV tuner, TiVO, etc. Any advice would be much appreciated. On both subjects.
