    Hey all,

    I'm in the market for a 32 inch LCD HDTV, but I'm definitely on a budget. I want one that is 1080p for maximum picture quality, but there's something that I'm not quite understanding.

    I have my eyes on the Sony Bravia KDL32BX320. On the Sony site, the specs listed for that TV are as follows: Video Signal : 1080/24p (HDMI™ only), 1080/60i, 1080/60p (HDMI™ / Component), 720/60p, 480/60i, 480/60p. The thing I don't understand is that in the description it lists the Display Resolution : 1366 X 768p (WXGA).

    Doesn't the resolution have to be 1920x1080 in order to be 1080p?

    Thanks for any help.

    the panel is a 720 panel, but will take a 1080 signal.

    for a 32", a 720 panel is fine, you have to be closer than about 5 feet to see an improvement by going to 1080 at that size.
