    I'm curious if anyone knows solid details on the new Pioneer VSX-10 AV amp (£2500) which apparently has progressive scan/scaler video processor on-board?

    Does it handle
    PAL?
    PAL 2:2 pull-down?
    NTSC 3:2 pull-down?
    Output timings and resolutions? 60Hz, 72Hz, 71.928Hz? 75Hz? 100Hz?
    480p, 720p, 864p, 960p, 1080i?
    What's the de-interlacing chipset used?

    If it works well, it seems like a great idea.

    regards,
    Rob.

    I have heard that like the Denon A1-SR, it can convert S-Video and composite to component, but not seen any reports that suggest it can do more than that.

    The A10X merely has a video transcoder built in. This allows conversion between composite, s-video and component video only.
