Should I set my cable box to 1080i or 1080p?

For most people: 1080i If Native isn’t an option, 1080i is likely your next best choice. Most TVs are 1080p, and 1080i and 1080p are the same resolution. Pros: All 1080i channels will be output to your TV exactly as is.

Does 720p or 1080i look better?

With 720p you have the choice of a lower resolution image (worse) with progressive scan (better) – and with 1080i you have a higher resolution image (better) with interlaced scan (worse). In theory, both of these has an advantage over the other – and also a disadvantage.

What’s the difference between 1080p and 1920 x 1080?

1080p and 1080i systems are both HD certified and therefore capable of displaying 1920 x 1080 pixel images. The difference between these two resolutions, however, is in the way the images are displayed. The letters “i” and “p” refer to the display mode used: 1080i refers to “interlaced” and 1080p to “progressive scan”.

What kind of video is broadcast in 1080i?

How many frames per second does 1080i60 have?

1080i60 means that you’re getting 60 half frames (alternating lines) per second, so only 30 complete frames per second.

In fact you don’t get even a single complete frame per second.
