Default How does 1080i content look on the Sony BDP-S350?

I have this player, but have not watched a 1080i Blu-Ray yet. The HDGuru.com review says the following:

The first test is to determine the BDP-S350s ability to properly deinterlace 1080i HD content. Most movies are digitally transferred from film at 1080p/24Hz; however, many music concerts and scripted TV series appearing on Blu-ray are recorded and mastered at 1080i/30 Hz. The i stands for interlaced and alternately outputs 540 odd and even lines of resolution every 1/60 of a second. When set to 1080p/60 a Blu-ray player should combine the odd and even lines into a complete 1080 line image every 1/60 of a second. The BDP-S350 cant do this and simply doubles the number of scan lines with the same 540 lines of information, thereby displaying only 50% of the detail within the recording.

The article does state that most 2008 HDTV's properly deinterlace 1080i, so that is an option when, or if, I can get a new TV. I have a 720p JVC right now.

1080i/720p is an excellent picture.

Do you change the output on your player to 1080i?

yes.

But if your TV is 720p native, that is what it should be set to.

Thanks, I was checking to see what I should do if/when I pick up a 1080p TV.

Default 1080i/60

Correct me if I'm wrong, as I understand, 1080i/60 (more correct to refer to than "1080i/30 Hz"?) does not always mean the same thing or handled the same way.

It can be derived from 1080p/30 with the progressive field data marked in the metadata (the Blu-ray spec does not support 1080p/30 as such), or from true interlaced 1080i/60 fields, where the first and second fields are separate in time by 1/60th of a second when recorded and therefore should not be weaved.
