And I guess I have to strongly disagree with diddling the picture in ways that alter what is on discs. To each his own, but I don't do it.
As for 1080i to 1080p... that is the most elementary process possible... you take 2 "half frames" and turn them into a single full frame - you just buffer the half frames, it's elementary. Digital displays don't have scanning electron beams to complicate things. In the digital domain, absolutely NO processing is needed or desired to do that. If you had a disc with the same program material recorded in 1080i and 1080p, there should be absolutely no difference in appearance on a 1080p display with or without a Radiance -- unless you add tweaks that alter the image... and to my way of thinking, that's not the point of a device like the Radiance.
I described what I observed by driving a Kuro display with a Radiance. You can't disagree with it... it is/was exactly as I described -- because I did NOT add anything artificial to the images with the Radiance.
