Looking at their website it seems the Plasma TV's only do 1024x768 but the LCD versions do 1920x1080.

I guess this is the difference between "HD" and "FULL HD"

the Plasma will take in the signal and downscale it

Thanks

There are very few mid priced models that do the full 1080 x 1920

but the public are being sold 1024 x 720 and 1366 x 768 as HD Ready .
so yes buyer beware , once again !!

The DVB standards state that any display capable of 720 vertical lines or more is recognised as HD Ready. And yes that includes displays that have rectangular pixels as a 1024x720 one would have.

Dont forget that even though a image may be captured in 1080, processed, recorded and maintained in 1080 in the studio environment as soon as it hits the distribution mpeg4 encoder for transmission, the first thing it meets is a severe bunch of filters that in essence unless the image is stationary is unlikely to let much north of 7-800 lines of res get to your home anyway. Cleaver DCT prefiltering is one of the most worked on parts of the mpeg4 process over mpeg2, but there is no getting away from the fact that it is a filter there to make a 1Gb/s+ sample stream easier to code into a 14Mb/s or so one.
