HDTV Question.
Ok I recently bought a 19 inch HDTV (I know small but at least it is HD and all I could afford) so my question is this: I am buying a Playstation 3 to use as a Blu Ray player only. The HDTV sais it has 720p/1080i but alot of the Blu Ray discs I see today say 1080p. Does this mean I will not be able to watch Blu Ray movies on this tv and I have to get a bigger one, or can I still watch them in 1080i or 720p? Thanks ahead for all your help and a brief explanation of all this tech p and i stuff would be great!

Yes, you should be able to use it. You won't be seeing it in 1080p obviously, and honestly, HD seems a little pointless on a such a small screen, but it will downscale the 1080p content to 1080i/720p for you.

I'm surprised a manufacturer even made a 19" TV with 1080 (i or p).

Set the PS3 to output 720p. The TV will accept 1080i, bit it will down-scale it as it only has 720 lines of resolution. Just use the one closest to the native res of the panel.
