I have 4 AppleTVs and run one through a VP50. I am using Pio Elite 110FD and 150FD so no screen here. But I have no problems letting the Elite do scaling/stretch or the VP50 they look great. BTW, I have found through trials just to leave the AppleTV set at 1080I is best in my situations. We love the AppleTVs and I upgraded one to 250G to hold TV shows, movies, videos, all our pictures and music. I even transferred some VHS shows I couldn't part with to it. My wife can use an AppleTV, she would not touch an HTPC.
