I was hoping to buy a new HDTV for christmas this year but it looks like there are no sets between 37"-42" that will have 1080p available. I also heard that sets under 50" aren't big enough to properly display 1080p anyway. Is that true? Anyway my question is that does 1920 x 1080 resolution from 1080p have downsides? Example, when I upgraded to my first HDTV I noticed that the picture from regular TV looked like crap (now I only watch regular TV on a standard def TV). The same goes for DVDs, which I also only watch on standard def TVs with progressive scan. Will the same thing happen with 1080p where the potential clarity destroys pictures with lower native resolutions? I hope that makes sense. Also, will the loss of quality of making a DVD-5 from a DVD-9 show up on more expensive TV's like plasma or will it be barely noticeable?
