Most HDTV's made today are either 720p or 1080p.  The key to smooth motion 
is in the letter, not the number.  Progressive will look better than 
interlaced, regardless of resolution.  And unless you have a very large TV 
(50+"), you'll be hard pressed to see the difference in resolution at a 
normal viewing distance (8-10').
