I am looking to get a scaler with a 1080i output resolution. There are so many choices it gets a little overwhelming. I need to upconvert S-Video from a cental hub with outputs from a DVD burner, Terapin CDR, and Sony VCR input to it. I will also be sending progessive scan from a Sony DVD changer through it too. CATV would be nice but not a deal breaker. I am not sure if I will be upconverting a HD DirecTV Tivo through it or not (see my other thread). All of it will be going into my Sony HDTV through an HDMI connection. I don't mind going with a DVI to HDMI adapter since I will be using a surround processor and onboard TV sound will not be used.
