Full HD vs HD, watching TV

So... want to get this straight once and for all.

If I have a 1920 x 1080 native TV, and I have a 1366 x 768 TV, and I run High Definition TV into the two, will there be any difference in the two pictures, or does 1920 x 1080 only play a part when watching 1080p signals?

Thanks guys :)

You are correct. AFAIK

1080i is available on that res TV. 1080p is not which is fine IMO for only bluray only uses that sort of quality. No HD channels use that higher quality. Foxtel and Austar will only use 1080i signals.

Its more about the quality of the image that the TV produces then how many pixels it displays personally. For instance the Pioneer Plasmas are awesome TVs.

Agreed. The actual quality of the image you see has a great deal to do with the components that go into putting the image on the panel, as well as the panel itself.

Good example is when watching a DVD on your 22" or 24" computer monitor - it looks shite. But watch the same thing on your 40" LCD TV and it looks pretty dang good.

Having said that, in terms of pure detail more pixels = more detail. Crappy "Full HD" panels will give you really detailed compression artifacts and colour aberrations. Awesome "HD" panels will give you slightly less detailed beautiful images.

That was my understanding exactly :)

gotta remember as well that even with tv's that have the 1366x768 native resolution will not display 1080i properly, it will still scale it down.

i = interlace (odd/even), p=progressive (odd & even at the same time)

but yeah in regards to broadcast television, not much at the moment is done at 1080i anyway.

Well that's the point I was stuck up on, 1080i is 1920 x 1080 interlaced so a 1920 x 1080 panel WILL make it look better than a 1366 x 768 panel...

So that was why I asked I guess, that niggling thought.

at the end of the day though, it comes down to how close you are sitting. if you are asking the question for TV viewing purpose, where you normally sit alot farther then you would a computer monitor, then in most cases you will probably not notice the difference in detail.

its the same arguement as to whether 1080P is really worth it. i mean now it might not be as big a deal as they are getting cheaper as the months roll on but when the technology was still newish, it really did come down to the actual size of the panel VS your viewing distance.

because at a certain distance your eyes just cannot physically resolve the resolution detail, so you would be wasting your money on a 1080P set when a 720P set would've just done just as well. so no matter what anyone says, unless they have a bionic eye from the future its just physically impossible to discern differences after a certain distance.

just remember as well though that a 1080P tv set will be using new technologies compared to a 720P set, so that will most likely be the reason you might be seeing better picture quality from a 1080P set.

it would be the same reason why i personally think using a 1080P set (eg: 40"'s and up) as a computer is useless because you will be sitting much closer and you will be seeing all the anomolies in detail.

if you are planning to buy a new big screen tv, definately get a 1080P set.

its pretty set in stone now and i was reading an article from some rep either in samsung or pioneer (can't remember exactly) and they said 1080P will be around for quite a while as broadcast tv is still to catch up and blu-ray is yet to fully capitalise into the market.

meh... my LCD projector is 1280x1024 native and scales to 1920x1080 there's less pixels being displayed but at a higher res... if I sit back far enough I don't notice the pixels at all unless it's a pure white background

All said Australian HDTV is mostly broadcasted in 720p and most of the HD channels are just upscaled 720p so if you're TV can do 1280x720 then for the most part with TV you wont notice
