Default OK, really quick, image sizing for display on HDTV...

OK, really quick, how should I size images for slideshow display on HDTV, 16:9 aspect ratio? I think the device displays 720P or 720i but it will take a 1080i signal. I don't know much about HDTV video modes and what have you, just some basics plus what I can glean from Wikipedia. Anybody got experience displaying stills on an HDTV set?

Thanks,
Chip

My dad's done it before, but I believe he was just using some free slideshow software (no idea what it was) without any special effort towards resizing or anything.

Personally, what I'd do is batch everything to the 16:9 ratio and start working from there...
