So I'll probably wait to see the XBR2. However this brings me back to the question about taking advantage of the D2's video scaling, which is my main reason for choosing the D2.
1080i to 1080p, thats an easy to understand as is 720p to 1080p, but what are you all experiencing on the SD to 1080p up conversion? Does the anthem let you keep the original aspect ratio as an option, or does it have to default to 16:9? Have you found one setting better then another?
Additionally, from the whole seating distance/screen size perspective with SD scaled to 1080p what is the visual effect with respect to the details. Does the upconverting let you actually sit closer/go larger without seeing the pixels?
I have seen other scalers but not the Genum, some with some impressive results off of DVDs, that scaled to 1080i.
