Don't get me wrong, not in any way criticising your advice, which
is all good, but something worth saying I think: although Bob is
excellent for avoiding motion artifacts (well in fact it should
not produce any), using it means you'll get no real advantage
from having a 1080 screen over a 720. And supposedly content providers
choose to transmit in 1080i when there's a lot of detail in
the images, and not so much motion.
