Yeah, at least as bad, if not worse. At least with the Pal, if you turn the sharpness way up it actually does look decent on the HD material (on the Pio, that is). Not so much with the others, IMO. But I would use the Maggie on the 32" 480i analog anyway. The Maggie/Philips actually looked a bit better than the Pal does on that. For some reason, I can't get the Pal to look very acceptable on the CRT no matter what I try, so it's kind of an opposite situation. Better processing through the Pio's composite inputs, I would assume.
Like I said, I'm more than satisfied with the PQ and performance of the E85H and CM-7000 setup, but I'm just curious if it's any better than the older models, even though I basically liked the Maggie a lot, except for the PQ and a couple of bugs the one I had exhibited.
So, in my overall opinion, I would say that if the new model's PQ isn't improved from the old one's and the Philips', you'd be better off using what you've already got (or the CM-7000, to use with the IR blaster). That is, if you're planning on using it with the 50" Panny.
