I don't understand all the hype revolving around the video scalers in the new AV receivers this year. Not that I don't undrstand what a video scaler does, I just don't beleive the true need for it. I assume 95% of the people who upgraded to a HDMI receiver this year did it because they own a HDDVD player or BLURAY player. The video quality is 1080i or 1080p. You can have high quality scaler in the player and the receiver BUT once the video signal gets to the television, another scaler will affect the video signal. Not that its a bad thing but the television is the final link in the chain. I'm totally aware that the scaler is for non HD signals. But lets be honest you upgraded your receiver for HD sound & picture not SD sound and picture.
