good question, the only thing is that there are currently only one brand doing it (Onkyo/Intergra) with the Sherwood R-972 coming out soon.

From what I understand the chips can be implemented differently.

I would love to hear what owners of each have to say.

The deinterlacing and scaling of the Reon chip will be the same no matter where it is. The Reon chip has a number of optional user adjustments which a particular makers of DVD players, rec'rs or projs. may decide to offer to the buyer in whole, in part, or not at all. That is where the difference arises. But the performance as a deinterlacer/scaler will be the same no matter which user controls are offered.

The Toshiba XA2 has the most adjustable picture menu compared to the Onkyo/Integra receivers,preamps. I'm not familiar with the BD offerings to make any comments.

Don't agree...
There are 2 primary factors that determine end visual performance..
1.Hardware..
Has to do with board layout, grounding patterns and quality of supporting components such as video encoders and decoders.
2. Software
There are 2 levels of software, 1 is the functional portion (access to available features). And the other is its registry that requires significant tweaking for best visual performance.

The Reon and Realta are very advanced parts but it takes knowledgible design experience to get the max available visual performance from each.. Also the software for the Realta is another level of complexity above the Reon due to its Terranex processor..

Just my $.02 worth...

I would ask if you have either of the products with the reon processor.If you did it would be quit apparent that your statment is not based in fact,first had account.I have a ONKYO 875 and a SAMSUNG BDP1200 both have the processor.The samsung acctualy does a much better job of upconverting and gives some options to fine tuning.it is the softwear that is implemented into the chip that makes it work to its fullest not black magic.The ONKYO was crippled deliberatly,so you would have to pay more..the 905 to get some tweakability out of it and even then they dont open it up to its full potential.
