    I was talking to a Samsung Technician yesterday and we were talking about upscaling.....

    He then said to me "you do know the LE26R41BD is not an upconverting screen, it only displays what is is given"

    i.e it dosent upscale the signal to 780 or 1080i, just displays them.

    Can anyone confirm if this is true?

    if this is the case should I be feeling robbed?

    dunno if its a good or a bad thing!?

    :rolleyes:

    Depending on your use, I'd say that's really good, like for PC use. Let the software do all the scaling.

    Good in that not doing so kept the price down by about £15!
    Bad for you, in that you need an upscaling DVD player.
    Good for Samsung, in that they can now flog you the solution - HD850 or 950 DVD player!!

    BTW, it's 720, not 780.

    I thought we'd established that there is some form of scaling going on, regardless!!!? (other post of a similar title)

    It does "scale" - in so much as when it's fed a PAL broadcast signal, it scales the picture so that 576 lines are spread out the 768 vertically. I guess what the Tech was confusing you or himself with is that it doesn't convert the signal to 720p or 1080i - those resolutions have to be supplied externally.

    If this isn't what he was refering to - then I'm as lost as you are as to what he WAS trying to say.

    Ok Pjskel,

    Ill go for that.

    So if the "720" or "1080" source is supplied to the LCD screen externally (dvd player) the conversion (scaling ) the screen does is to fit it to the screen to suit.

    There is no upconverting or downconverting, just scaling what it is fed, and displaying as such!

    Yes?

    like i said...the screen does upscale an SD source to a HD resolution. Like the previous post mentioned. All displays will scale a source to its native resolution for display :lesson:

    It may be a case of clarifying exactley what you are saying :)

    Like my previous post mentioned lol!!!!


    So, it will scale to its native resoloution - PERIOD - yes!?

    whether it be SD or a HD source.

    so in a sense its upconverting the 720 signal and downconverting the 1080i signal!? :smashin: :thumbsdow :D

    Pretty much - 720 signals get mapped acoss 768 pixels vertically and 1280 to 1366 horizontally.
    1080 gets scaled down to 768 and 1920 to 1366 horizontally.
    So, as this is scaling, I'm now confused as to what the Tech was trying to imply.
    Maybe he was a camera support guy filling in for a display support person, off sick.

    The technicians aren't holy, sadly enough LCD technology is completely different then conventional TV's. A friend of mine is a great technician and he repairs a lot of broken TV's, but he can't handle modern service menu's and cant do anything with LCD and Plasma TV's. Its a totaly different subject.
