Advertisements My THD is ordered (!!) and now I'm shopping for an HDTV. Planning to spend money up front, and have this investment last for many many years, so I've been dismissing anything less that 1080p. Usually buying the biggest and baddest at the time means fewer years suffering with obsolescence in the future. Since the TiVo HD unit's highest output resolution is 1080i, could it potentially be a waste of money to invest in an HDTV that is 1080p? Should I consider units that are 720p or 1080i? 97% of our current viewing is done via TiVo's Now Playing. We never watch straight signal TV, bypassing the TiVo. We only occasionally watch DVDs, but do not plan to buy a high-end DVD player for several years.
