Also keep in mind the 'forte' of the Faroudja chipset is de-interlacing
, not necessarily scaling
. By feeding a 480p signal from the S350 you are effectively only using the receiver to scale
, and it is very likely that the TV or S350 will offer improved scaling. You will need to set the S350 to output 480i (DVD's are encoded 480i not
480p) to compare results, and as mentioned above, this will need to be selected manually each time.
