My Dish Box won't do NR.
The scaler in the VIP211 is excellent (better than my DVDO VP50).
The best SD broadcasting I have seen from Sat. or Cable.

If anybody is interested, or missed the news, F1 will be broadcasting in HD. Speed has announced they will also broadcast the races in HD as well (and thus I suspect Fox in the summer).

It is my understanding thought that for now the on-board shots will remain in SD. I think it has something to do with the technology not being up to spec and the weigh of the cameras on the cars.
