interlaced HD

is it just me or is it really retarded?

what is the point of interlacing for HD signals? i have always wondered this - i just don't understand it! why??

interlacing for HD seems like the most redundant, useless thing ever. who actually has an interlaced HD display? 50% of what i record with my HDV camera never gets seen. so why record it in the first place? if there is a reasonable justification for it i would so like to hear it.

I have an interlaced HD display that does 1080i: my Sony WEGA 40" CRT , weighing in at 305 lbs. They don't make it anymore, but its color and blacks are glorious. When I bought it in 2003, there were lots of 1080i CRT displays from at least 28-36".

Interlaced displays are on the way out faster than anyone thought. For action, I don't think that I like 30p better than 60i. I would love 60p, though.
