Video Mode: The default setting of Processor Off passes the video
signal through to the display without any processing.

Ok. So when I read your post, I felt like an idiot (not because of you, just the simplicity) because I was pretty sure I had played with all the settings and never came accross the option to turn the video processing (scaling) off.
I have the same verse in the hardcopy manual included in with the unit, BUT, the option does not appear on the AVR.... atleast not exactly as it is presented. I attach the following pics to illustrate:
The only option I get is the presets (Nature, Sports, Game, etc), which simply allow you to change the contrast, brightness, etc, or off....no "Processor Off" option which is what I would like.
In the "Off" setting, you can see it clearly downscaling the 1080i signal to 720p (2nd pic, see 'res from source' vs 'res to display').... so now I don't know what to do. I can confirm that the receiver was indeed sending a 720p signal to my TV as it displays it in the info.
I feel silly for asking about this again but am I really that dumb or did they just mess up on the manual, or worse, on the receiver?
