the upscaling is working if your TV says the input signal is 1080p. again, the image is not going to just magically improve for no reason. while it's certainly possible that the receiver may do a better or worse job than your TV when displaying the image, i wouldn't be the least bit surprised if both images are exactly the same.
Thank you for your answer. But follow this thinking,
my input signals are not a poor one. Both are digital. However one is from a TV-set-of-box (S-Video) and the other form a DVD player (component-video).
If I receive a HD signal in 720p or 1080p, I don't need an upscale processor. I need it from a Standard video input signal.
If the Faroudja processor doesn´t make any difference from an standard video input signal, what it is for? Even if the source is 480i, the processor can interpolate, create more intermediate frames, can do many algoriths to improve image quality. Don't you agree? If this is note de case, we don´t need to pay for an upscale processor, or we are paying for nothing.
