720p/1080i tvs for playback

While a lot of us are in limbo wondering if we're going to hang on to our JVC 720ps or switch to Sony's 1080i, are there any safe HDTVs we can buy in the meantime, sets that can play both 1080i and 720p in their native resolutions without upconverting or downconverting or anything else? I know they've just come out with one tv that plays 1080p--but it's 21,000 dollars.

I have a Samsung that can, but I plugged it in and it was a mess on TV, so I switched to All to 1080i for the picture. I need to figure out how to switch it to 720p.

Keep your HD10 or HD1. It won't hurt you as much as selling it at a loss to buy a new camera that no one is certain about. Remember how a lot of us didn't know the JVC wasn't fully manual?

Re: How Good is 720p

I've had a heap of trouble getting my Panasonic 76cm HDTV to play the HD10u stream at anything above 480p....

Finally gave up and decided to get a Sharp Aquos 83cm LCD HDTV. To be sure I took various media with short m2t/mpg clips to the supplier to test.

To say that I was blown away is an understatement!!! Even the sales dude (who was originally 'coolish' because of the myths regarding the HD1/10) was taken aback.

The Aquos specs actually state the resolution of the screen, which is something worth knowing when purchasing a HDTV for viewing any HD video.....most CRT/Plasma specs avoid mentioning resolution because they're really HD 'ready' - not true HD. Pricing is also now at the level WS CRT HD ready sets were about 2.5 years ago.

If you can afford a Sharp Aquos, I'd recommend getting hold of one!!!!

BTW the HD10 video was delivered to screen via a Roku HD1000 - so these media players do work with HDV MPEG2!

Makes the Aussie experience of HDTV, with most Capital cities now providing at least 2/3 HD FTA channels, seem luxurious!!

Here's some specs on the 32" model (bottom speakers), which is IMO, a good compromise on size-price-resolution.

As you can see from the specs, the Aquos will more than handle 720p resolution. If you want a HDTV with actual 1920x1080 resolution you'll be paying really big bucks...so a little downrez may be worth living with!!!

Finally got my Sharp Aquos......HOORAY!!!

Plugged my laptop in using DVI connector and played back all my HD content, including samples downloaded from forum contributors.

Flamin' Awesome!!!!!

Some observations:

HD10 HD video is at least equal to FTA HD 1080i broadcast.
On the Aquos the chroma noise issue isn't even as evident as on any of my 17" PC WS LCD displays. In fact; some FTA HD broadcasts exhibit worse chrome noise, and one would assume they would have been shot on Cinealta or Varicam!!!

The HD10 colour (when shot using ND/Polarizer) is tangibly more natural than FTA HD which appears to carry more saturation.

The Sony FX1 HD sample clip is indistinguishable from HD10 footage.

Even if I purchase the Sony FX1, there's no way - after seeing how good the HD10 looks on a quality HD monitor - that I'll be 'flogging off' my HD10.
