    would I need one..??
    Basically I may have the opportunity to get the above Sony, if I did would I still need to use a scaler.??
    I'm a total virgin when it comes to CRT but could ditch my Panny PTAE1000 in favour of this if the feedback is positive enough..
    Thanks in advance..

    I'd suggest a minimum of an Iscan for use with this device. Ideally a scaler will get the best from it but you can get away with a decent de-interlacer like Iscan or Omega1.

    On a 16:9 screen you are probably looking at trying to get 600P ish out of it. A de-interlacer will get you 576P from PAL and 480P from NTSC.

    If you need more info just ask.

    If it truely is a D50 HTU it will have a built in line doubler any how. the Iscan will give better results too.
    A really well set up D50 will resolve line tripling too. but not Quadrupled.
