Default Whats better for Blu-Rays: 720p or 1080i?

Taking 1080p out of the equation, what do you think is the better Resolution for Blu-Ray Movies, 720p or 1080i? I was wondering this because I have a TV that can Output both 720p and 1080i. I know with games 720p is better, but what about Blu-Ray movies?

im not an expert but my guess is whatever resolution your tv displays natively. for most people if you dont have a 1080p set yours is 720p native.

it is likely 720p depending on the model
it is likely your TV's resolution is 1366x768 meaning the 1080i the video will be sent to the TV interlaced then the 1920x1080 smashed down to 1366x768 and deinterlaced to be displayed on the TV

if using 720p a progressive 1280x720 image will be sent to the TV and stretched to 1366x768

so now it depends on your tvs deinterlacing capabilities because technically you will get a higher resolution with 1080i but the difference will be negligible and you wont be able to tell a difference

so i would recommend 720p just because the progressive image will likely look better than a deinterlaced image
