I totally get it

Lightbulb My turn.

My own view about this from what me eyes tell me.

* First, one of my TV is a 720p native resolution (1,280 horizontal lines x 720 verical lines). ...Exactly! ...I counted them.
-> Some sources that I use (HD DVD & Blu-ray players) look much better at 1080i video output (HDMI) resolution. ...For Movies (1080p) and Music Concert Videos (1080i).
-> But for others sources (DVD players, not all brands, some Denon ones), 720p looks better (that is for Movies on DVDs of course, even for slow moving as for fast moving images).

Conclusion: It all depends of few factors, but at the end your eyes are the final judge.

Did I won something?

You forgot TV size, so no, lol. Under 30 inches hardly any difference can be seen in the two.

ive got a 720p (supports 1080i) tv which i quite like, i watch blurays on it but not HDTV so i cant use that to compare.

what i have used to compare 1080i/720p is my ps3 whilst watching blu's and playing games, using 1080i i get a load of ghosting when somthing fast is on the screen (if the screen is dark its like a light shadow is left behind the thing that is moving) with 720p this does not happen.

watching hd stuff on my PC i notice that all the concert blus i own that are 1080i look very jittery when the camera pans on my screen (which is over 1080p res), i generally watch 1080i stuff in 720p which takes up less room and looks just as good Imo (i wont go into the conversion process as it might be against the rules).

Meaning a 32 inch or less at 1080 is pointless.
Nope, it's all to do with how close you sit.
I sit 2ft away from my 22" computer monitor and can tell the difference between a 720p source and a 1080p source VERY easily with my native resolution set to 1680x1050.

Without knowing the viewing distance, such statements are baseless. For some distances 1080 would be pointless on anything 120" or less.
The first thing I try to communicate to my crew is that there will be no shaky-cam and no rack zooms, because those techniques are only used to hide the fact that there is no energy. When you eliminate those gimmicks you’re confronted with the reality of the shot you have in front of you, and nine times out of 10 you say to yourself: “This just isn’t working.”

Doesn't that mean the PC is de-interlacing 1080i badly or not at all? Do they look better when played with a regular player? If your PC player has different de-interlacing options you could try those and see if one of them looks better. Proper de-interlacing will probably need more PC processing power. Something shot in 1080/60i, and de-interlaced to 1080p60 (like a TV/hardware player would) should look a lot less jittery when the camera pans than something shot in 1080p24.
