32" HD Problem?

Hey Everyone

I just got a Polaroid 32" 3211-TLXB, HD Widescreen LCD TV.
I am Confused under Specifactions it says 720p, but then it says
capable of 408p, 720p, 1080i.

I have a new OPPO dvd upconverter should I use it to go up to
1080i, or should I just keep both set on 720p??

Thanks for any help***

720p

:iagree:

1080i looks like a better number, but because it’s interlaced (draw’s every ODD line, then goes back and draws every even line), it can cause eye strain.

The 720p (progressive -> every frame is rendered in it’s entirety) is the better option.

Your screen has a native resolution of 720p (1366 x 768). It’s possible that feeding it 720p will look better than feeding it 1080i, but you really need to try both and see. It depends on the quality of the onboard scaler in the monitor. At 32", odds are high that you won’t see any difference at all.

1080i is 1920 x 1080
720p is 1,280x720

Native Resolution is 1366 x 768 ( 768p)

You best choice would be 720p

Your T.V. would de-interlace 1080i to 768p matching the max resolution of your T.V.
Being that your screen size is smaller there will be little difference between the two.
You might find that watching fast motion 720p will be better.

I fully agree with this. :cool:

I would also suggest comparing the 480p output mode on your OPPO player to its 720p and 1080i modes. As your TV’s native resolution is 1366 x 768 and both 720p and 1080i are 1280 x 720 and 1920 x 1080 respectively, setting your DVD player to 720p or 1080i will result in a double conversion - first with the DVD player upscaling to 720p or 1080i (depending on the mode you choose) and then your TV re-scaling this image to show in its native resolution of 1366 x 768.

However, if you set your DVD player to 480p output, only one conversion process will take place, as your DVD player will only de-interlace the image and your TV will upscale the image directly from 480p to its native resolution of 1366 x 768, which may result in a slightly better image than a double-conversion process.
