Well, normally around this time, I'd be going on a family vacation this year, and at least a week away from the house would cost around $3000 (plane tickets, car rentals, hotels, the works). HOWEVER...it turns out that my dad just told me that instead of going on vacation this year (partly due to rising gas prices), he says he'll want to spend the money on getting me and my bro new flat-panel HDTVs. While already my mind says yes, I do have some questions. 1. I've been hearing about the whole input/output mumbo jumbo about turning from 480i to 480p, 720i to 720p, and 1080i to 1080p. What does that mean? It confuses me. I can assume that the i means it's meant for standard, and the p would mean it's for HD. Again, what does it mean? Forgive me if I'm somewhat out of the loop here. 2. I have an Xbox 360, a Wii, and a PS2. My 360 already has a component cable, I can buy a component cable for the Wii, but what about the PS2? Is there an HD cable I can get for that? Or am I out of luck? 3. Video game-related. So, let's say for example I get a 720p HDTV. Can I play the three systems that I have on it, despite the fact that the Wii can only do 480p in HD? Or am I out of luck again? So can anyone help me? I kinda need to have this stuff known by Thursday, because I think that may be the day my dad goes and gets the HDTVs. Thanks!
