OK... I have a Sony KV-40XBR800 and the only true HDTV that I receive on it is via an HDTV cable box - 8 channels in total. I've had the set for a year now and I've been very pleased with it but I have no idea what its native resolution is so I have no idea if the letterboxed HDTV image that I'm seeing is "truly" 1080i HDTV (and I don't know that I really care or not - I'm pleased with the picture and I have an incredible surround sound system which I'm pleased with as well). But I would like to know - if someone out there is familiar with this model - what the native resolution actually is!). Now my real question- I bought a Samsung TSN3084WHD HDTV for my bedroom (along with an inexpensive, but highly rated "Home Theater in a Box"). I bought this model because it's 'sister' model (i.e., same specs less the built-in HD tuner on the TSN3084WHD) also received accolades in Consumer Reports AND because I was looking to spend MUCH less money on a bedroom set-up than I spent for my living room equipment. And if the TV is obsolete in a couple of years because it lacks DVI, I'll just buy another set. But two things confuse me about this model: 1) it lacks 720 resolution - as a few channels are broadcast at 720, will the TSN3084WHD simply DOWN convert to 480p (or 480i) or will it upconvert to 1080i? Or (and I hope this isn't the answer) will it simply not display the 720 broadcast? 2) As the model has only 800 horizontal resolution, I'm assuming (correctly?) that even though it's a widescreen 30" model, I WON'T BE seeing TRUE 1080i HDTV? So what in the heck will I be seeing??? Pseudo HDTV?? The TV will be here tomorrow (February 9) between 9-11 am, but I doubt that the manual is going to be much help in answering these questions. Tomorrow I'll only be able to judge the picture quality against my KV-40XBR800 (and I have installed an antenna for the Samsung so that I can receive the HDTV signals broadcast in my area). So... while I'm expecting a bit of higher quality viewing from the Samsung compared to the present analog Sony KV-27FV310 in my bedroom - well, exactly WHAT will I be seeing on the Samsung? Not full-resolution HDTV, I know (but I'm not likely seeing that on my living room Sony KV-40XBR800 either, right??). I'm very, very confused... if anyone can help, please leave a message or email me at [email protected]... your educational aid will be most appreciated, I can assure you!
