    I have a Pioneer 50" Plasma 720 monitor. For the optimal Tivo broadcast should I set the Tivo to 1080i or 720p. I am looking for the best picture output possible.

    720p. That is what your native resolution is on your tv.

    Plus I would personally pick 720p over 1080i any day.

    Depends on which scaler is better. If the TiVo scales better to 720P then use that. But if the TV scales better to 720P then set the TiVo for 720P and 1080i output.

    For me, it was not so much of the scaler as the annoyance of my Samsung changing resolutions. Keeping it fixed eliminated that time lag.

    I agree on the resolution lag. Right now i have it set at 720p for the Tivo and to be honest hard to tell which is better 720p or 1080i.

    I actually prefer 1080i to 720p.
