    HDTVs that have been advertised here have a "High Resolution: 1360x768." as a selling feature. What exactly does this mean? I thought HDTV was either 720 or 1080? OR is this the PAL standard?

    1360x768 is the viewing resolution for said tv. 1080i and/or 1080p is the resolution scanning technique it does. "i" meaning interlaced and "p" meaning progressive. 720 and up is for hd.

    So is 768 a relatively high resolution? What makes more a difference to the quality? The scanning technique or the resolution, or are all HDTV's 1360X768?

    scanning makes more the difference. 1360x768 is the most common rez for hd tv's, but better is out there. what ur looking for in an hd tv right now is... 1920x1080, 1080p, & 2x hdmi's. imo. those can be had for about a grand.

    As far as I know, the real resolution of 720p is 768 lines. 48 of those lines are not displayed on the screen -- those lines contain audio and meta information about whatever is on that channel.

    No, that's not it.

    The TV signal has 720 lines. A TV with more than that (for example, 768 lines) "upscales" the signal. Basically adding in a pixel here and there to make up the numbers.

    I read a really nice Buyer's Guide some where on the web once, can't find it any more, but it covered just about everything.
