The best receivers are the ones where you can disable all video processing
I have a ps3 slim that upscales regular dvd's better than my 3D TV, so I use that for upscaling and disable all processing on my AVR.
And I definitely do not want my blu-ray movies touched in any way by my AVR.
I have a projector putting an image on a very large screen. The projector works great in almost all areas, but when it meets a television signal it can, at times, falter. On a smaller screen it probably would not be noticeable, but when an image gets over 100 inches, the imperfections become more apparent.
It is only a partial truth that "the best receivers are the ones where you can disable all video processing". I agree with you that the PS3 does a great job of processing video, but you cannot send other video sources through it, so if my projector cannot handle television as well as I would like, then the glowing reviews of the PS3's video processing become partly irrelevant. There are some sources for which I would want to be able to disable the processing, but there are others that improved processing would be helpful - hence the original question.
I hope this answers your
