I recently became educated on the fact that Netflix only streams up 720p through the Xbox 360 (which is my preferred streaming box).
- info here -http://support.netflix.com/en/node/262#gsc.tab=0
I also recently just got my Onkyo TX-NR709 with Marvell Qdeo (I believe kyoto-g2h) chip.
Upon this new info, i realize the fact that I always have my Xbox set to output at 1080p - it is upscaling the "HD" Netflix content for me, not just the SD. As well as the SD or 720 content I play through my network shares.
Would I be better off setting my Xbox to output at 720p or auto based on content and let my Onkyo do the upscaling? or is the Xbox 360 a better technology?
What is the typical process in a scenario like this - obviously comes into play when I stream media thru Xbox on network too, etc.
In addition to that - I use a WD-TV Live for streaming from USB - I guess this little box also upscales a lot of stuff too for me.
Should I bypass all those sources processing and just use the Onkyo to upscale - or keep it the way it is?
What about my display? LG 60PA6550...I guess when I throw a USB in it - it upscales the content too. Would it be the preferable device for scaling? Looks like it uses LG's "Triple XD Engine" or something.
I have never noticed any worse than expected quality for what I am doing. But I guess I could be missing out now that I have the Onkyo with the Qdeo?
I know that's a lot of questions...this is my first "real" receiver - and my knowledge of video processing etc. is very slim - thanks again.
