Default 1080i 1080p Mitsubishi situation

New to the sight and just have a few questions. I just bought a PS3 and was excited to hook it up to what I thought was my 1080p Mitsubishi (WD 62927 06 model). Long story short TV does not accept 1080p signal thru HDMI input, only thru IEEE and a cable card slot???
Called Mit and they said the signal is being up converted to 1080p. They say 1080p plush tech is up converting it to 1080p. It has a 1080P light engine. Very frustrating TV is capable of 1080p but I think I'm only getting 1080i. My dilemma is if I'm not getting a
1080p picture how far off am I? Is it worth keeping the PS3 if I'm not getting true 1080p? Spoke to someone at a high end elec store and he said I would not see much of a difference on a 1080p tv and what I currently have. Just want to make sure. Would rather not have to go buy a new TV our return the PS3.
Watched 3:10 last night and looked good.

Thanks

what people need to understand is that EVERY set made employs some type of digital processing before the picture is outputted (is that a word?)
Anyway, the higher dollar sets IN GENERAL employ better processing.
simple as that. how much better each set is of course, is the $1,000,000 question. Is there a set that would accept and output a "true" 1080p signal whereby you would notice a discernable difference. I'm sure there is. Is is worth the $$$? depends on how much you value the slight upgrade in pq. I mean it's all relative. Any degree of improvement is going to be just that--a degree of improvement.
There are SO many variables to overall pq that it is very hard to know which one's will have the greatest effect.
Put another way--many people swear by interconnects. You may be able to spend a bunch of money and improve your pq through a new power cord.
or a better power conditioner. I mean who knows? there are a million things people do to try and improve performance and many swear by these things. Do they all work? I have no idea.

I read the review on this site for the Blu Ray Terminator 3 disc. Apparently it was encoded wrong at 1080i, and the HD DVD was encoded at 1080p. I believe the reviewer did not notice a great deal of difference between the two.

Well, I checked out the review of T3 and this is what it said:

"Comparing this disc with its HD DVD counterpart, it was clear that, when viewed in its raw 1080i state, jaggies and other motion artifacts were clearly apparent on the Blu-ray. However, once upconverted (either through a Blu-ray player and/or an HD monitor) the truth is that the final on-screen image shows little discernible difference between the two high-def versions of 'T3.' (Sorry, flame me.) "

So since your TV can not accept a 1080p signal, then you would fall into the category of having jaggies and motion artifacts. Sorry. But 1080p has twice the resolution of 1080i. However, unless you are comparing things side by side, how much will you notice? I am sure it will still look good on 1080i. But if you had your heart set on 1080p I would get a new TV.

The poster did say his TV upconverts the 1080i signal to 1080p.. sooo he would fall into the other 'OK' category would he not?

That confused me a bit. He says that his TV is 1080i, but it upconverts to 1080p. If it upconverts to 1080p, it has to be 1080p.

Ok, I did some searching on the web, and this model will support the following formats. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p_60. So, if he is not getting 1080p through HDMI, his TV should upconvert it to 1080p. Sorry for the confusion, but this should answer the question.

Thanks, it was confusing the way Mit has this TV set up. 1080 P but will not except the signal with HDMI. Seems a strange way to get a 1080 p signal.

I don't think I will be buying a Mit for my next set, think I will go plasma.

I have two MIts. My 73727 DLP only accepts 1080i and upconverts to 1080p. the only jaggies I see is in the HDDVD logo. My LCD LT52133 accepts 1080p and seems a little sharper. I love watching movies on either. You don't miss any resolution with a 1080i set. You won't see a difference unless you are less than 1.5 the diagonal of the screen distance away.

Short answer, don't sweat it you've got a great TV.
