    Just bourght a samsung dvd recorder, and the picture out-put is 576p, using a HDMI cable.
    AS iam new to this, i thought all products using HDMI were upscaling!
    The TV, is a Tosh WLt66
    Have i wasted my money?
    Thanks very much
    Leon.

    First off WHAT Samsung DVD recorder?
    If it has a HDMI connection to your TOSH, you have to tell it in the DVD menu to output 1080i, it wont do it by just plugging a cable in.

    A HDMI device isn't necessarily going to be an upscaling one, though 576p is still better than what you'd get from a normal player.

    First off Progressive is a form of up-scaling.
    As you have forgot to mention your devive model and if you have one of these Samsungs, it is capable of 1080i
    R135,R136,VR336
    But the ones with HDD on board can only do 576P

    Sorry , forgot to say , the Samsung , is a HR738 DVD recorder, so it doe's out put at 576p, so is it a waste of money?
