Nope. The only consumer models capable of 1080p are the discontinued Toshiba 57" LCOS and the Mitsubishi (82" ?) LCOS. This fall, TI plans to ship its xHD3 1080p DLP chip, so we should see the first 1080p DLP sets late this year or early next year. Samsung has two 1080p DLPs planned, a 61" followed by a 73"; these will probably run at least $6000.If my Sony 51" RPTV can output 1080i does this mean it can push 1080p??
ANd just what is going to make these TV stations start broadcasting 1080p?madpoet said:Vurbano, you do realize that 1080i is just scaled down 1080p, right? A lot of HD is shot in 1080p and then just scaled to 720p or 1080i from what I understand. I don't think they are natively shooting this stuff in 1080i (though I suppose I could be wrong).

ahhmadpoet said:Public pressure. Not much else. 1080p is a resource hog, no doubt about it . That link to thenew DLP sets was interesting. I was amazed at the MSRP on the 1080p set. Very cost effective!
Apparently you misunderstood.madpoet said:Apparently you misunderstood .
1) Stations are forced to go to digital, not to HD. You can still be broadcasting 480 programming in the digital spectrum. They are doing HD because it's what the public wants.
2) Majority of people still have analog sets, regardless of what the FCC wants to happen.
3) If enough people did some talkign with their wallet, D* would listen.
4) Cost effective was in reference to the cost of the 1080p-capable set. Very nice price for it.
Try not to jump the gun too much
