I picked up a Dell Studio Hybrid to replace my aging Xbox 1 and I am trying to figure out the correct aspect ratio. My current tv is a 57" 1080i Projection TV. I am connected through the HDMI port. If I set the HTPC for 1280X720 and play back an HD Movie inside Media portal will it be 1080i or will it be at 720. I can set the resolution to 1080i if I need to. I will be using it as a Movie/TV/Emultator PC only.

If you set the resolution at 1280x720 it will be that. The "correct" aspect ratio is the one that the video was shot in and the director intended for you to see but I'm guessing that's not your question.
