Been reading up, most stuff I'm finding still says 1080i sets are more common, 
though most of that data may be outdated. I give up on understanding how many 
lines a 1080i set can actually display... I know only 540 lines make it to 
the screen per frame, but it does seem that they don't overwrite the previous 
field, so you would lose a little bit running a 1920x540p mode versus a 
1920x1080i mode. I'm punting, time for sleep. :-)
