Yep - our shipping team got everything sorted out today. Sorry for the delay! We hope you enjoy your new Tablo!
Some video-nerd friends of mine say that, all things considered, 720p is generally better quality than 1080i, anyway.
Another thing: If the actual frame rate (not 1/2 frame for Interleaved formats) is still 29.97 (30) fps, then what is the advantage of recording at 60 fps? Aren’t you just providing the TV with twice as much information as the original source material?
Some 720p shows (mostly sports) are broadcast at 60fps, so that is the advantage.
Good thing I don’t like sports, then!
