This might be a silly question. I would like to feed a scaler a digital 576i siganl from a DVD player so that the scaler does the de-interlacing and I bypass the digital>analogue>digital. I can not afford an SDI modded player or SDI input scaler. I would like to use a digital signal from the DVD player, and I understand DVI output only supports 480p or 576p not 480i or 576i. HDMI does support 576i so I was thinking HDMI>DVI lead. The scaler I am thinking about is the iscan hd or hd+. For digital they only have a DVI input. There is no mention of either scaler accepting 576i via the DVI. Is this an omission becuase it is simply not possible, or is it becuase no-one does this. I will not be needing an HDCP as my plasma doesn't accept it a anyway and this is all for standard def stuff.
