    I would guess all inputs are upscaled to its only native res.

    I have sources going into the DVI and COMP-P. Both utilise the TV's internal scaling. From what I gather this can only be avoided by providing the TV with a signal which matches its native resolution. In this case 720p. I understand some of the Denons can do this as well as the Pio DVD players. Alternatively you can look at an iScan HD or equivalent I suppose..

    All inputs are de-interlaced (if necessary) and scaled to native. It's the old question of whether the processing in the player is better than that in the display.
