I am looking to upscale a Wii and other things but don't want my projector to do it. I am also not looking to spend a ton. What is the best bang for the buck?

The Denon 1910/790 is your best bet as it uses an ABT video chip.

A Denon 590/1610 or better yet the 690/1910.

The 590/1610 doesn't do any upscaling, it just allows analog video to be output to HDMI. No upscaling is done.

Why don't you want your projector to upscale? Without knowing the specific model, I'll still dare say it will probably scale better than a $400 receiver.

I just got a Denon 3310ci. If any of the cheaper Denon receivers have the same chip/scaling features then they deserve a serious look. I have an older 65" Mitsubishi TV that only accepts 480i/p and 1080i inputs. It also can't properly display 4:3 material since it's 4:3 mode is more like 3:3.


Feeding it from the 3310ci, I can now get properly scaled 4:3 material and 720p material from my PS3 is properly upscaled to 1080i.

I was looking for a better sub since my original sounds system was a Sony HTIB so I ended up getting Yamaha RX-V565 7.1-Ch Receiver + Klipsch KSW-10 Sub $430 shipped to my door. I had seen some get the receiver for 330 on some deal I couldn't find but the sub is a 200 sub on sale. Did I do OK or did I screw myself?

Where are you seeing the 120Hz info? I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the full specs on the Denon website. Do any TV's even accept a 120Hz input?


When a TV displays at 120Hz, it is just showing the same frame 2 (for 60) or 5 (for 24) times in a row. Not sure what benefit would come from the Receiver doing that instead of the TV itself.

None at all... If the TV can display it, it can repeat the frames itself. If it can't, it won't be able to accept the signal. You'd also be increasing the cable bandwidth requirements for no reason at all.

If you bought a Yamaha 565 and are trying configure a Wii..

Make sure that the 565 has the latest firmware updates, for some strange reason the Yamaha marketing team neglected to provide the feature of configuring component video inputs and analog audio..



The latest firmware update now provides this capability.


Just my $0.01...
