For me the way the G7 and the 2017's handle crapier sources is more of a benefit to myself rather than if my tv can play 3d. I own two 3d movies and have always found wearing glasses more of a PITA than actual enjoyment of the movie itself. Now that may be due to the passive vs active (I can't remember which tv does what) but 30-40% of my viewing is still in 720p/1080i so handling of sources in low IRE's I will see on a daily basis and the G7 does that better than my B6. Garbage in is still Garbage out but the G7 does it better.

I've read differing reports (likely because it's a bit subjective) on picture quality for compressed (cable) and non 4k sources. What is your experience? I have DirecTV, and I only watch HD content. If it made a difference, I could hook up my Tivo Roamio to record OTA for local programming (a good amount of what I watch) if it really made that big of a difference.
That said, what is your take on HD content being upscaled? I've read comments that scare me. On my 55EG9100, HD content looks good. I don't want to upgrade (when I do, i'll be 65") to a 65" 4K only to be sorely disappointed at the quality on a decent amount of the content I watch.
