I thought you were supposed to be putting the Kuro in the bedroom to make room for the new 1080 in the main HT area.

There ya go, I am sure the Kuro has a better PQ than that Sony so you can easily justify the new expense wink smile

My brother and I have done extensive testing on his 46" LCD TV between 720p and 1080p.

We both concluded that at that size there was almost no difference in PQ between the two, sitting about 10 feet away.

Has any one else found similar results?

I suspect there would be a difference in a front projection system with screen sizes over 80"

According to those HT TV sizing charts a 46" TV at 720 or 1080 would look the same to most people upto about 6-8' away. As the screen size goes up so does the need for more lines of resolution when watching from the same viewing point to keep the picture crisp.

I just checked out Future Shops website, and they don't have any 720p LCD's over 40", and only 1 that's priced over $500 (32" at $650).
