DirectTV HD Format Compatibility
I bought a Samsung Touch of Color 46" LCD TV in May 2008. I am not switching to DirectTV, and I have read that they broadcast their HD signal in a format they call 1080p24. I want to know if the TV I have will work on that format. According to DirectTV, this is the format required to view the full 1080p. Otherwise, I would end up viewing in 1080i they say, and I do not want that. Please advise. Thank you, Marc
Although you did not disclose the actual model of your TV, I would think that it should still be able to display 24p/1080p. However, I believe that this mode can only be transmitted over HDMI, so ensure that your Directv receiver offers HDMI.
