    in the 26" tv the 1080 doesn't make much of a difference.

    The upscaling will make the quality a little better it's not huge

    as far as the movies they're filmed in a different aspect ratio so they'll fit on the theater screen it just doesn't make sense

    Also i like to play all my DVDs on my PS3 connect to my HDTV with the HDMI cable. Theres a function on the PS3 on the DVD Settings called up scale, can it make my DVDs Better quality?

    Also i have a question about Widescreen, I now have a Widescreen TV, though my DVDs Still have black lines above & below the image, when i strech the image, The people look thin. surely films arent sposed to be watched like this, films at a Ratio of 2.35:1 just cant be full screen, is it just a bad design of the film companies or are widescreen TVs not built correctly?
    on a 26in screen you could not tell the difference between 1080p and 720p


    here is a really good site on aspect ratios Widescreen-o-Rama! All About Aspect Ratios

    Aspect ratio (image - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Why 1.77:1 (16:9)?

    When the 1.77:1 aspect ratio was proposed by Kerns H. Powers, nobody was creating 16:9 video. The popular choices in 1980 were 1.33, 1.67, 1.85, 2.20 and 2.35. Powers discovered that all of those aspects would fit within a 1.77:1 outer rectangle and when over-lapped, all shared a common 1.77:1 inner rectangle. Hence, any of the "common 5" can be neatly cropped or matted to fill a 16:9 screen.

    While 1.77:1 was initially selected as a compromise format, the popularity of HDTV broadcast has solidified 1.77:1 as perhaps the most important video aspect ratio going forward. Most 1.33:1 and 2.35:1 video is now recorded such that a 1.77:1 inner rectangle is "protected" for HD broadcast. Meanwhile, the 1.33:1 (4:3) aspect is declining in popularity.
