    Probably a stupid question but I don't know for sure and don't want to spend money on a player if it wont work with my TV.

    My question is will a 1080p BD player with a 1080p disc work ok on a 1080i TV. If it works at all will I notice a difference?

    I'm looking at this BD player.

    While on the subject why is it that a BD-RW/DVD/CD internal drive is available at £85 while the cheapest stand alone player I've found is more than twice the amount?

    Usually the resolution stated is the highest possible the player can output.

    Im gussing it will downgrade to 1080i.

    Theres a whole lot more people with 720p/1080i displays than 1080p

    my 720p display shows 1080i content just fine (although i think it looks worse than 720p)
