Default Playing 1080p Blu-ray on 1080i TV

Hi All,

I'm new to blu-ray since buying a PS3, and was wondering if anyone could explaing exactly how the various definitions work.

I have a 50" Panasonic 1080i TV and rented Blood Diamond the other night. The specs say it is 1080p, so my question is this:

What does my TV actually output the movie in if it's upper limit is 1080i?

Quite honestly I just didn't see the quality I was expecting from it. I expected it to blow me away completely, given that 1080i (assuming it drops "down" from 1080p to 1080i) is a lot better than regular DVD.
