Is anyone doing this and if so what are the results like?

Also interested to hear from anyone who is upscaling DVD content to HDTV.

I'm in the process of upgrading my AV receiver, DVD player and TV and I'm looking at going for an HDTV set-up with an upscaling AV receiver and just wondering what I can expect.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Most if not all HDTV's will upscale the input to their native format, whether 720p or 1080i. From my experience feeding the TCL cable signal into a HDTV (JVC with native resolution of 1280x720) it surely does expose how bad the TCL signal it is.

Having a receiver that upcales can help in two ways. One when it has a pretty good upscaler which is better than the TV's. Then you feed native signal format to the TV. And probably more conveniently, if you have a number of signal sources (DVD, cable, games console) each with a different connection, you can connect the receiver to the HDTV with one (component) connection, connect all the devices to the receiver and switch inputs using the receiver rather than having to switch the HDTV from AV1, AV2 etc.
