Guys,


This seems so incredibly confusing. One of the big advantages I see in the replay 5000 series is the 480p output. But what doesn't make sense is that wouldn't you need a 480p input in order to realize the benefits?


For example, If I bought the new Samsung HDTV DirecTV receiver it simultaneously will output 480p or higher and 480i. So if I am watching a show real time with 480p output and wanted to record 480p, I couldn't.


Am I missing something here?

The Progressive output acts as a simple line doubler, inferior to the scalers found in most large-screen TVs nowadays - but better than nothing. The Component Video format does provide better signal quality than S-Video, though, with most people citing noticably richer colors. However, your mileage may vary. Many folks whose TVs have good scalers in them like the interlaced S-video output better (since a progressive signal usually bypasses their TV's scaler).


Look at this thread from last week for more details.

Thanks for the info. That blows my advatage of the replay TV out of the water since I would assume My Sharp 9000 would do a better job especially since it scales to 720p.
