    I understand that CBS broadcast its HDTV programs on 720p, but what DTV format should I downconvert to if I have a HDTV-ready monitor with 480p, 480i, and 1080i formats?

    CBS broadcasts in 1080i. ABC broadcasts in 720p.

    I would use 1080i to view 720p material. Much closer than 480.

    Thank you for correcting me. With two formats, I am having problems on which stations are using them.
