I bought a mini as majority of my content is sd or below sd. But when I played a movie from hdd through seagate theater+ media player, i observed no pq change with mini. File details are
File type : .avi
Video: MPEG4 640*480 23fps

It might not a good test but as far my understanding is the media is low quality and the mini should have made a considerable difference. Or is that the vt50 has on par vp? I am still in the return period, so the question is does vt50 need a vp if the majority content is going to be sd quality?

If you can set up the Radiance/ VT50 for 1:1 pixel maping thus by pass the VT50s internal VP you should get better results as the Radiance will do A better job especialy with SD, BTW 720X480 is NTSC DVD quality..

Also the Radiance can be used to further refine CMS/ picture quality once the VT50 has been optimised..

And of course your media player also has to output SD material as real SD, so you have to disable the upscaling in your media player. As long as your Seagate player is set to 1080p output, the VP in line won't make a difference.

In most (every?) media player that's a pain though, because they don't offer automatic resolution switching, so you're switching around resolutions all the time....
