I have read many of the posts so far but still haven't clear answer to what would be best to start with. I would kinda like a projector as I have perfect location for one in basement. However none seem to have "true" 1080i resolution. Even the rear projection sets utilizing DLP or LCD don't seem to have it. They all top out at 1280x720. I have seen a few used CRT projectors that claim to reach 1920x1080 but not sure if this is true. What about RP-CRT sets? I could get a nice 55" for under $1500 which is what I want to spend. I figure I can always upgrade down the road. Just not sure how good CRT tech is. And are the CRT and RP-CRT's actually 1920x1080 as many claim or do they just accept a 1080i signal and downmix it to 720? Thank you for your advice.
