Non-progressive scan, so 1080i
Full 1080i is still the right term. Contrary to workers at the local appliance store "full" 1080 and "true" HD are meaningless terms thrown about when talking about 1080p sets.
1080i is full and true HD as it is one of the approved standards.
I agree with you technically, especially about the True and Full HD quote.
However, anything 720P and up is considered HD
1024x768 wouldn't be considered HD.
Kidding. My point is that the folks on sales floor are trying to make some new minimum requirement that anything other than 1080p isn't HD. They ignore the fact that 1080p is not a broadcast standard and is not available in any transmitted format in the US. Nor is it likely in the relatively near future.
Which HD channels are still only broadcast in MPEG2? ESPN and ESPN2 look noticeably worse. Will this change with the new sat? Thanks.
All MPEG4 channels are full 1920x1080i.
