I run 1080i over component quite smoothly... you should look into that!

DVI>> HDMI is a bit sketchy though... and you get overscan no matter what...

Thanks for the replies!  I'll have to play around with that.  Sounds really
promising.  Even the 1080i certainly isn't horrible...just not up to snuff.
Anything that gives a noticeable improvement will definitely be awesome.

Don't get me wrong as far as the comment on my 1080i TV (Hitachi 51F500)...I
actually love that thing.  The reference to being "unfortunate" was only in
regard to the nVidia drivers handling 1080i poorly.
