    Please enlighten me: Why do some LCD TV's have a resolution of 1366x768 pixels when the HD format is 1280x720??? I would assume that this small amount of upsamling would only blur the picture further, can someone explain this? Here is a Samsung TV with this resolution...

    because those panels are in existance and they tend to be less expensive than 720p panels. Since they are available, companies build displays with them. And yes, as always everything that comes into the display must be scaled for the panel.

    The panels were also specifically for the WXGA format - note the vertical resolution of 768. It's the 16:9 version of 1024x768.

    No matter what Hollywood thinks, the PC world is much bigger than they'll ever be.
