I am curious about the new xbr series. I am trying to pick between the 36xbr450 and a 16:9 rptv. I play a fair number of videogames, and my room has a fair amount of sunlight. Anyway, I am wondering what the true resolution of the Sony is in 1080i 16:9 mode. I would pick the Sony over a 16:9 direct view because it's 16:9 image is about the same as a 34" widescreen anyway. Can anyone answer this question and help me choose? I keep going back and forth between direct view and rptvs since 16:9 is the way of the future. If the Sony can display the full 1080i resolution in a 16:9 window,(which I do not believe it can) this will just about seal the deal. I will still wait to see the 50H81, but I'm getting tired of 16:9 on my 27" Toshiba quickly!! Any xbr owners want to help me out?
