my tv supports :
EDTV 640/720 x 480p
720 x 576p
HDTV 1920 x1080i
1920 x 1152i
VGA 640 x 480 60 Hz
SVGA 800 x 600 60 Hz
This tv only have a DVI input so i will buy a hdmi---DVI connector
my next question is can i watch 1080P movies will the popcorn downscale to 1080i
i prefer 1080i above720p beacuse my tv wont upscale the 1280x720P too 1366x768 resolution i will have black borders but the image is oustanding
I have a Philips 23PFL5322, with only DVI input....
I use a DVI -> HDMI convertor with no problem...
If you set the popcorn to 720p the TV will upscale to fill the screen.. I have not been able to get 1:1 pixelmapping, since the TV only reports "mode not supported" when I choose 1366x768 on the PCH...
Playing 1080p movies is no problem, as the popcorn will downscale them to the current resolution.. It does not matter if you have 720x576, 720x480, 1280x720 or 1920x1080... everyting will be scaled to fit!
