    No, you need a converter box.

    Think 720p is still better then 1080I tho. 720p handles fast images better and in games you have that more then watching regular tv

    Where ?
    cant see results like "HDMI 1080p to 1080i converter box" or "simple HDMI res converter box including 1080i output option", at Amazon, eBay..

    Sorry, you are right. You need a "scaler" that supports HDMI output to 1080i. But I think it is hard to find a HDMI to HDMI scaler.

    Okay, thanks for all answers.
    I'll research a resolution converter box on all shop sites.

    If your tv also supports 720p that would be the better option. Interlacing is a thing of the past.
