your point is valid, but I have not found it a huge limitation as most of the material I watch is letterboxed or 16:9 enhanced (enhanced). The limited 4:3 viewing I engage in, is with DSS. I choose to let my hi def satellite receiver perform the AR and interpolating/scaling to 540p.
Although people who sell the product would not advertise this shortcoming, it was well documented in reviews on this site and SGTHT.
If this is a sticking point for you, consider selling your CI and buying a quadscan. It should be close to a lateral move financially. Do a few searches on the quadscan to find out what its shortcomings are.
Don, I switched to the Faroudja Native Rate Plus scaler, and that works perfectly with the D-ILA and ISCO (and also yields a noticably better image than the crystal image). So I am now a happy camper again.
