1080p LCD Monitors?
 
I have a little confusion over this 1080p thing. If your monitor has hdmi, will it support 1080p or does it specifically have to be designed for 1080p? I recently purchased this monitor Future Shop: Computers: Monitors: Samsung 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor (2493HM) and was wondering if I can connect my xbox 360 to it in 1080p? I still have the option of returning this monitor so if you have another sugestion, please list. Thanks

"1080p means that the resolution of the picture is 1,920 vertical pixels by 1,080 horizontal pixels and p stands again for progressive scanning. This format works on the same principle as 720p; the only difference is that in this type there are more pixels and the resolution is better."

but the thing is that 1080i is also 1920 by 1080, but with interlaced scanning so I'm not sure which type of scanning monitors generally do or if it even applies to monitors- is the 'scanning' an operation done by your video card? Anyone esle mroe savvy have input?

It should. Connect your xbox and try it. if the monitor stretches the image go to 1:1 pixel mapping in the on-screen display.

I think that there is a difference in scaling though right?
like the 24" BenQ (e2400HD) has 16:9 scaling in comparison to what this monitor is, 16:10.... correct?
