    I'm new to HDTV, I bought the Sony KV-32HS510, says it's supports 1080i.

    I'm still new to 480/720/1080

    Does my TV support 480i/p, 720i/p, and 1080i/p. If not, which ones does it support, I can't tell.

    Thanks

    480i I am sure would be in there, as they all handle what is called Standard Definition 480i.

    It accepts 720p but converts it to 1080i. So what you get with this excellent set is 1080i and 480p (use 480p with DVD). Oh, and welcome to Home Theater Forum.

    From what you describe, the TV will take in 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. What comes out on the picture tube is not stated, most likely it is 1080i only with 480i and 480p video converted (upconverted; scaled). It is not clear whether 720p is downconverted to 540p which goes through the final 1080i circuits with no problem, or is really upconverted to 1080i which requires more complex circuitry. Only a test pattern can prove the latter.

    All of Sony's current HD-ready sets will accept 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i.

    480i is upconverted by the set's DRC (digital reality creation). There are 3 DRC settings:

    1-Interlaced--converts 480i to 960i
    2-Progressive--converts 480i to 480p
    3-Cinemotion--converts 480i to 480p and applies 3/2 pulldown to reconcile the 24 fps of film to the 30 fps of video.

    480p is displayed natively, the DRC setting choices are not available when the set is fed 480p. The set does not convert 480p to 540p like Hitachi, Toshiba, and some others.

    720p is converted to 1080i.

    1080i is displayed natively.
