After trying to formulate a simple explanation of how 1080i is a poor cousin to 1080p, I found this done for me in several places already.
One of them is found here:

Will not display 1080p from cable company. i have a hd box hooked up


Most cable HD-boxes output either 720p or 1080i, not 1080p.
Set your TV to 1080i or 720p.
Set the HD box to the same resolution.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

I have hooked up my br to an onkyo home theater through hdmi. i now get an unusable signal on my flat screen. This also happens when I hook it up directly to the tv. What can I do to get this to work


hi,
The Blu-ray player outputs full HD VIDEO (1080p) through HDMI, if your tv is not a full HD one then you can't see the video. Do one thing connect the Blu-ray player to any full HD tv and go to it video setting. Down scale the video to 1080i. All HD ready tvs supports only resolution up to 1080i. only full HD tvs supports 1080p. Down scale the video to 1080i surely you will get video. Also check the version of HDMI cable you have used. It should be 1.2 or above.
ok

What is diferent betwin 1920*1080p and 1920*1080I


Television pictures are a series of still pictures that are presented quickly to give the illusion of continuous movement.
1080p and 1080i indicate how these pictures are formed.
1080p is progressive scan. It is a format that "paints" the picture left to right, top to bottom. On older tube type screens, this would cause the top of the picture to be dimmer than the bottom, as the phosphers would fade before the next picture was painted.
1080i is interlaced scan. This format paints every other line from top to bottom, and then paints the lines it missed before moving to the next picture. This evens out the brightness.
If your TV is capable of 1080p, it is considered to be the best picture (but you probably won't see the difference).

TV set always starts up indicating 420p. How do I get it to 1080?I have Bell expressvu HD


is your cable or sat in HD(720p, 1080i, 1080p) over the air broadcast in the usa is in digital so it should start at the highest res available in your area

next are you using HDMI or composite for your cable or sat going into your tv if not your not going to get higher than 420p because A/V and S-video do NOT support HD

check your cable/sat box is it HD(high def) or SD(standard def) if SD going through cattv/attn in your only going to get 420p

now for changing the resolution its automatic it goes to the highest setting on its own

you can control the resolution through your cable/sat box, blue ray/hddvd player and other HD devices connected to the tv through the options menus of those devices BUT only when connected through

HDMI(supports 720p, 1080i, 1080p)
composite(supports 420p, 420i, 720p)
A/v and S-video(supports 420p)
cat tv/attn in(supports 420p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p) only supports what the tuner will do

i=50hz
p=60hz

My Insignia hd 1080p tv is only receiving at 720p. I am using HDMI cables and a telus hd tv box. How do I get it to receive at the full 1080p?


I hate to be the one to break this to you, but there is very little 1080p content available to be viewed on your television. Telus TV outputs only 720p or 1080i video, so you are getting the best available picture already. The exception is Blu-ray, where almost all content is played at 1080p if you use an HDMI cable.

1080i on tv and not 1080p


No. Most broadcasts are limited to 1080i. BlueRay discs and (now defunct HDDVD) are the only time you will see 1080p. I heard DirectTV may also be running 1080p soon (or already have the option). In any case, 1080p requires 2x the bandwith vs. 1080i. I assure you that unless you see them side-by-side, you will not notice the difference. You many not notice the difference when you do see them side-by-side. The broadcast controls the 1080i vs. 1080p (not a setting on your TV).
