Just to add another kink into things.
The HLM and HLN (at least prior to the W1 change) mapped 720p DVI directly, pixel for pixel. It was easy to see viewing a 720p multiburst pattern from an Accupel test pattern generator, where you could see one row on, one row off. (DNIE disabled of course as the edge enhancement it adds would totally corrupt the high resolution portions of such a test pattern).
With the HLP's, this is no longer the case. There is some scaling going on (resulting in more overscan, 3-4% vs. just under 2% previously) and obvious scaling induced banding in the highest frequency pixel burst. So, in that respect the older models generated a more "pure" 720p image. I'm hoping this is something that can be corrected, either by Samsung in some midstream update or via some hitherto unknown service mode "scaling" adjustment. Very disappointing.
