I know that the Onky would have better scaling then my ps3, so I need to go and turn the upscaling off. my ATT uverse box outputs at 1080i.
I haven't really played with this side of it yet, so I'm curious as to what you guys have to say about it.
It depends which of your components does the best upscaling. There are generally three components which can upscale - the source unit (BD player etc), the AVR and the screen. You need to upscale in the place where it is done best.
If the source upscales the best, then you need to set it to its highest output resolution and the AVR needs to be set to Through. The screen will see 1080p coming in and do nothing.
If the AVR upscales best, then the source needs to be set to the native resolution of the material (often called 'Source' or something similar) and the AVR set to 1080p or whatever the highest res is that your screen supports. Again, the screen will see 1080p coming in and do nothing.
If the screen upscales best, you need the source set to the native resolution, the AVR set the Through, and the screen upscales will upscale to the highest res the panel or PJ can support.
How do you know which upscales best? Use a test disc and try all three methods. Remember also that the Onkyo has numerous additional picture quality controls which you may wish to use and if so, then you will need to have the AVR doing the work here. And these PQ controls are on a per-source basis, so you could, for example, enable some noise reduction on your SD TV source but not on your other sources. To enable this on a source by source basis it is important to set the AVR to SOURCE (not Through) in the Monitor Out/Resolution setting menu. You can then set each source to Through or 1080p or whatever you want in the Source Setup menu elsewhere.
