Now you're just being silly.

I'd forgotten all about this. How it decended into madness. It's sad when you chuckle at you're own stupidity. I bring it back to the top for others to enjoy again.
You've also got to take into account the 4 different types of mish mash that aren't commonly seen (by the average unit user) and thought to be interchangeable. These four different variances of mish mash are quite different. One type of mish mash may be mished a second time thus allowing mishy mish mash, the second type of mish mash can not be mished a second time but may be mashed again creating mish mashy mash. The 3rd allows both a secondary mish and mash which of course creates Mishy mish mashy mash, whilst the fourth allows no further progression towards mashification or mis**tude... (lol @ mish itude)

You see whilst it is very easy to measure in mish mash sometimes there are underlying properties of certain units that aren't taken into account by the average user...
Throw out all you ever knew about measuring your mish mash.

I recently had more mish mash than even the pelican's under beak flapper sack could tolerate, and when I mentioned this to 'a colleague' (someone on the inside whose views I trust) they told me that in order to measure more mish mash, I should just go ahead and measure it against more mish mash.

That's right. It sounds incredible but it works. Try it.
I tend to measure my mish mash with mashed mish, its the only way to go now a days.

Nic, how do you measure your 'mish mash'? Do you measure your mish mash in feet and inches or do you measure your mish mash in metres. I personally measure my mish mash by the sock full or when there is a large quantity of the aforementioned mish mash, I'll use a pelicans under beak flapper sack.

What do other DVD Active users measure their mish mash with? No time wasters please. This is serious.

Glad I'm not the only one. I don't know what kind of dummy invented the metric system but I can't stand it. I live in Canada, but measure in Miles, Lbs, Inches and Feet, F instead of C, etc..
I'm 7'3 inches
There are certainly times when centimetres sound more impressive than inches Wink

Really? Ok...was sure all countries in europe, at least, used the metric system. Oh well...
I don't use the bloody metric system either. I'm 6' 1", not 1.85 something or other metres.
Edit: sorry, nothing... Wink

Was gonna lecture Slave2Horror on the fact that 1 foot is apx 0.3 meters, but then realised he/she is from the US (was thinking UK) , one of only 3 countries in the world that don't use the metric system, the others being Liberia and Myanmar. Guess you know what you're talking about. Wink
Sitting only a foot away I'd be surprised if you can see anything.
A foot to a foot and a half!? That's crazy!

To answer your question: I have a 50" plasma that is "HD Ready", able to play up to 1080i that is. I had a 1080p LCD for a while but returned two of those due to backlight bleeding. I can't say i noticed any difference at all, that's what surprised me. The only thing i can think of that you might be able to notice is the scaling issue Chris mentions. Edges of titles on screen can get a bit jagged at times (rarely), but on the whole, it's nothing that bothers me. 1080i looks just as impressing, even on a 50" screen.
Slave2Horror, I'd sit several feet further back from your screen than just a foot to a foot and a half-away...  That's just asking for eyestrain during extended periods!
Realistically, no. The only real advantage to having 1080p with a TV of that size if the 1:1 pixel mapping functionality. With a 720p panel there will be some scaling of the image, but I doubt you'd really notice if you're not bothered by overscan etc.
HD question.
hello I recently bought a 32" HDTV and a blu ray player. however the tv only goes up to 720p and all my friends are saying I should have gone with 1080p, however it is way to expensive for me. so my question is will I be able to notice a difference between 1080 and 720, i am usally sitting a foot to a foot and half away from my tv. thanx ahead for your help.. thanx ahead for your help.
