All this talk about scalers made me do some research. Indeed video processing is a fascinating subject, and I now understand that even though the interlaced signal from my DVD is converted to progressive scan inside my plasma, it would be worthwhile having a real video processor of some sort - not only what I assume is just a line doubler. What I don't like is the multiple D/A and A/D conversions. Surely this can't be good, and the scaler introduces one more. I was therefore puzzled to learn that dScale doesn't support DVD-ROM. Why? Instead we are shipping our external players over to the states to have a SDI-board installed. Add to this the not so cheap H3D PCI-card... I think I have a PCTV card lying around at home (hopefully with s-video input), so will have a go when I get home just to try it out, but to me is sounds like it will be better running component straight to the plasma.
