I've been shopping for an A/V reciever and noticed that Denon and Yamaha (and others) both used the highly regarded Anchor Bay Technology ABT2010 chip for upscaling, upconversion, de-interlacing, re-interlacing etc. However, the Denon models such as the AVR 4310 advertise the HDMI upconversion to 1080p 24/60 (Hz) while the Yamaha advertises 1080p 24/120 (Hz). Can the Yamaha really upconvert to 120 Hz? Does anyone know if there's something different from the Denon?

If the Yamaha can do 120HZ, that would be the first I had seen outside of any LCD TV that does the 120HZ internally. The end result would to be make sure the TV you have or plan on getting will accept 1080p 120HZ signals. I know most will accept 24fps now.

The new Samsung LEDs can do 240hz refresh rates internally.

Since there are no native 1080p/120 sources, I'm not sure what the point of such a feature would be other than possible improvements with scaling and upconversion of lower-resolution signals. Your own eyes would probably be the best judge of whether not there were any such improvements. I know the 240hz conversion in my Samsung is horrible -- it makes all films look like high-definition video. I leave it disabled.

I haven't seen Yamaha's implementation of the ABT chipset, but the scaling in the Denon 4310ci is very high quality, almost as good as the one in the Oppo BDP-73.

meh, I would say go with the one that has the features or ergonomics you like, Yamaha and Denon both make nice receivers. It's easy to make yourself crazy comparing receivers--trust me, I know

Well, I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones.

I have and Samsung LN52A650A1F. It can display a 120 Hz 1080p picture but I'm not sure it can accept a 120 Hz signal from an external source.

I appreciate the thoughts. Scubie02 your right, I am driving myself crazy over this.
