Just an FYI to other owners looking to obtain a better SD image. I have been doing alot of research on video processors thinking that this may be the answer to my SD woes. After posting in that forum and talking with some companies......it seams that is not the case. Most of the issue with the SD signal is noise related, and most video processors improve the picture by deinterlacing. There are only a handful of VP's out there that have MPEG noise reduction circuitry built in and they are not cheap. Unfortunately, I think the choice is clear. Suffer with inferior SD and bathe in superior HD (and I have to keep reminding myself that what I am currently watching is either 1080i or 720p, not the full 1080p this panel is capable of) or revert back to the old CRT. Seeing how great this panel is with HD, and with the OPPO971 it also is stellar at DVD. My choice is easy.......screw SD.
