Thanks for the INFO lechonlubber!! you just saved me $10-$40!!Originally Posted by lechonlubber
I was wondering the same thing Turtle112 so i looked up the difference between 480i and 480p
I believe i means interlaced which basicly means it 240lines then 1/20th of a second later it kind of adds that next 240lines
and P means Progressive which basicly means it shows all 480lines at once...
And thats all i could figure out..
heres a quote from a random website
"The "i" and "p" refer to interlaced or progressive scanned images as described above. 480i is considered "standard" definition television and is the image we have all enjoyed for well over half a century. With new digital technology this 480i image can result in a very respectable picture quality for the viewer.
Take a 480i image and show both fields simultaneously and you have 480p, or progressive. This is the native format encoded onto a DVD (Digital Versatile Disc). Both 480i and 480p are based upon the standard 525 line NTSC broadcast system."
