    HD resolution is 1920 by 1080 pixels. I have'nt seen yet any display device that support this. We are not seeing true HD on the new machines. Are you all aware of that?

    and i doubt we will for a long long time. the majority of pc monitors out there wont even support that.
    and if they do, its at a very low, eye-straining refresh rate.
    personally i think it can only get so clear, then you get to the point of diminishing returns.

    Greetings
    Yes ... so what? It took the NTSC system 40 years to give us a TV that did the full 340 TVL image. 40 years ... and where are we right now ... year 4 or 5 into HD ...?
    My 21" Dell monitor shows the full 1920x1080i signal ... but you know what, I don't care to watch my movies on something that small. And the price for something much bigger ... $$$$
    everything can be had for a price ... even your soul ... [​IMG]

    Lots of digital projectors can display 720p correctly and that's very much true HDTV.

    Most of the cameras aren't even recording full resolution HD yet... but the point is, it's looks so much better than anything else. And this means it will only get better. It's really not worrying me!

    You are correct that most display devices that can even do HD will have to downconvert to their native resolutions. I was watching a 1080i broadcast on a Sony 11HT the other day and the clarity just about blew me away though.
