    Hi guys
    At the moment i have a pioneer dv575 connected to a sagem 56" dlp rear projection tv.I have read a lot about upscaling dvd players, and how the good ones e.g oppo give you a better picture.My question is does anyone know if the upscaler in my tv is a good one,and better than any of the upscalers in the majority of the budget dvds out there?
    Cheers

    Hi.
    I have the Sagem 56B and an Oppo 971.
    I get the best picture from the Oppo when using 720p. I think this means the Oppo's scaler is better than the TVs, even though the TV uses the same Faroudjia chip.

    Hi.

    You're welcome.

    But please note that I'm using the 971 model, not the 981.
    The 971 has a DVI connection and upscales to 1080i. The 981 is the newer model, which uses HDMI and upscales to 1080p.
