    I bought a Toshiba 57HDX82 about two months ago. I just now realized that it doesn't have a 720p mode (oops, guess I should've been paying more attention!).

    Should I be concerned? Please tell me I'm worrying about nothing...

    Don't worry about it. Almost no CRT RPTVs can do 720p. The Tosh converts it to 1080i.

    I bought the same monitor, I thought it could do 720p??? I run a 1280X720p signal to it and it looks great...

    Hmmm, sounds like the TV does a decent 720p to 1080i up-conversion then... I hope that's the case. That would alleviate my concerns over not having 720p!

    "Improved IDSC™ Pro with 720p Capability"
    off of the Toshiba web page

    I had assumed it was really 720p, thats why I bought it....

    Is it safe to assume that my 57HDX82 purchased in Canada is the exact same as the US version? My guess is yes, but you never know! The Canadian Toshiba website doesn't say anything about 720p conversion, but it does on the American Toshiba website...
