... or not, as it's become apparent from Arcams online specs. If I were to connect the DV79 HDMI socket to an IF7200/Tosh MT8 DVI port, using a 576p signal, am I right in thinking that the pj will do the scaling to 720p ? Does having the scaling done at the pj end introduce an extra D/A conversion ? Why would Arcam leave out the scaler, to save money (its already dearer than its direct rival the Pioneer 868) or doesn't it make any pq difference to have the pj do the scaling on a 576p signal ? So, what should be the best a) 868; Deinterlaced & Scaled to 720p o/p HDMI b) DV79; Deinterlaced 576p o/p via HDMI, scaled to 720p in pj. It would be nice to hear from someone whos had the chance to compare players ? cheers neil.
