The current STB's appear to offer many different display formats - 1080i, 480p, 480i and 720p. If you choose to allow the STB to upconvert your standard direct tv signal from 480i to 480p - does it apply 3:2 pulldown? If not, are you better off allowing your RPTV to do the upconversion if it includes 3:2 pulldown.


Thanks,


Anthony

I'd like to hear any thoughts on this as well. My TV doesn't even have an internal line doubler. If satellite-HD STB's can do as good a job, I'll be just as happy that it doesn't.

This is something you would have to check on a per-model basis, I think. You need 3:2 pulldown detection/compensation only when converting film-originated (24-fps) material from interlaced to progressive, so not having it is not as big a deal as in a progressive-output DVD player. Still, it's certainly better to have it than not.

If your TV has a line doubler, it is better to let the TV do it generally.


If your TV does not, let the STB upconvert to 1080I.
