    It says on their webpage that the maximum horizontal resolution is 800 lines. Does this mean that it can't accurately display 1080i HDTV? Also wondering what this set does to 720p material (xbox)?? Does it upconvert to 1080i, or not accept it at all?

    Also, the Toshiba 32" HDTV ready tv that I am considering advertises a max. of 1000 horizontal lines of resolution. Is there any advantage to this over the 800 in the Samsung set?

    Bump.

    Also, how does this set compare in general to the Toshiba 32HFX72?? There must be some people who have experience with both sets. BTW, this tv will be used with Satellite tv (not HD yet), Progressive DVD (Panny RP 91) and Video games (xbox, ps1, n64)

    I have the 27" version of this set. It will not display 720p-- you must set your STB to output 1080i or 480p only.

    The dot pitch of the shadow mask seems large enough that it's clear this set can't truly resolve all 1920 horizontal pixels of 1080i. Then again, few consumer displays short of a large CRT computer monitor can probably resolve every pixel of a 1080i (1920x1080) signal.

    Your mention of 540 lines is unrelated to anything. 1080 is the number of pixels going from top to bottom.... 1920 is the number of pixels from left to right. The horizontal resolution spec of 800 pixels you mentioned means that the TV will essentially map the 1920 pixels per horizontal line onto about 800 or so.
