My 6000 is set to output in 1080i. EVERYTHING is upconverted to 1080i to send to my TV. It was reported that analog to 1080i conversion was not great in the 6000. A more recent 6000 software release helped this. Personally, I don't ever tune analog signals as all L.A. stations are digital. Some go off the air digitally early and I don't watch them at those times.
Enterprise on UPN is letterboxed 16x9 in a 4x3 picture. The 6000 does a bad job of streaching this to fill my 16x9 screen. So when watching Enterprise I switch to SD on the 6000, S-video inputs in my TV, and streach the picure in my TV.
Many do exactly what you suggest. I have done it myself on ocassion. However, the difference is slight.
Like I said, I use the SD/HD switch and use the S-video only so my TV will expand the picture instead of the 6000. This is because the TV does a better job of expanding the 16x9 image to fill the screen of my set.
