A crisp, colorful shot from the DVD of Kill Bill shows how well the SL417 can upconvert lower resolution signals..
The Toshiba's processor did a great job of upconverting lower end signals to its full 1080p resolution. It especially shines when vertical pattern information is displayed such as ties, or blinds. Color output was just as good as with HD programming.
HQV Video Board Processing Tests
The SL417 received excellent results in processing testing. One of the best onboard video processors we've ever tested.
With 480i Input

Film based Pulldown tests (applicable to DVDs)

Cadence 3-2 24fps: V. Good to excellent result
For the best SD performance you are looking for, you will need a tv with a good video processor which tend to be top of the line sets and start at 46 inch which seems rather big for kitchen use. I guess you could go smaller... SD wont look as bad on a smaller screen. Maybe 22 inches is a not too big or small choice for SD. Once you pick a screen size go to a store and pick the tv that looks best to you, maybe bring SD content and play it on the tv right in the store.
