    The new Toshiba 65HX80 does not/cannot display 480p natively.
    They upconvert 480p to 540p which will cause unecesary
    artifacts.
    Last years Toshiba 65H80 and other RPTVs from other brands
    display BOTH 480p (DVD's) and 540p/1080i natively.
    But new Toshiba 65HX81 RPTVs cannot.
    Also, the new 65HX81 has only one convergence memory setting and the scaler makes automatic adjustements from it for all aspect ratios.
    Any comments from old 65H80 owners or new 65HX81 owners or those who chose another brand?
    I have had the ghosting/lines problems associated with the 65H80 and would love to hear you're coparison of the two sets.
    Please compare and contrast the two for me if you would.

    Have you seen the set at retail or in a home theater setting?
    Did you have the opportunity to compare it to the new 64" Elite or the new Sony 65XBR2?
    Did the set you see suffer from the green line and ghosting problems of the 2001 65H80?
