Note , with any new LCD or Plasma display TV , the best picture will be in 'p' mode , so if your TV has 1080p thats the best, but if not set 576p resolution in preference to 1080i - here the numbers are not what they seem despite what that salesman told you !

i = interlaced scan( the old system we've had for 50 years ) p=progressive scan - best on new displays
