"Dont touch that LG TV! It will bob deinterlace everything - meaning 1080i material becomes 540p sad.gif You can see the lines flicker just like an old CRT if you put your face close enough."

Sounds like a crock of Sh** to me.

When I send 540p via HDMI to my HD LG and compare it with 1080i, using the same material (DVD) then upscale to 1080i (using the same equipment). The picture is always clearer and crisper (ie better PQ), disproving the above Sh**. Well certainly on my setup.

Obviously Captainatomic has something against LG products, as he always tries to put them down (see also other posts by Captainatomic)

I ment to post this earlier but havent had the time,

The tennis was a full HD outside broadcast, camera's, control room etc.. the only exception was the super slo mo camera's were only SD, you might of noticed a bit of a quality difference when they cut to some of the low angles which on Rod Laver arena were mostly super slo cameras

7 just didnt broadcast it in HD

Seven never does HD. It's alleged HD ch70 is only 576 lines, same as SD, with progressive scanning. IOW double the frame rate but no extra res.

REAL HD IS 720p/1080i/1080p

Currently watching 9am with David and Kim on 10 HD on my LG and it's as rock steady as it's possible to get even with my face just about pressed up to it. If you are at Harvey Norman and see someone on their knees cuddling up to a tv just try: "HI Cap'n!!"
