But this would be going by the assumption that the alternative (to a
1080p set), would be an interlaced, 1080i set, no?  IOW if you have a
more common 720p set, this doesn't quite apply right?  Well, aside
from the scaling that would be going on, but again there the distance
rule would apply.  Just bringing it up because I myself couldn't
afford a 1080p set, but plugging up my 720p over HDMI was a snap.
