    Guys

    Although I am really pleased with my Sony, one thing I find a bit annoying is that it will only upscale video from an analogue connection, ie not via HDMI ?

    My question is in 2 parts I guess:

    If I wanted to upscale Standard Def Sky for instance via my amp, is the only way to do this to get an RGB-Component converter, then outputting the component signal to the amp which can then upscale and output via HDMI ?

    Secondly, assuming this would work, would there be any benefit in doing so ? Would the amps scaler be any better than the Sky box or TV scaler ?

    I would just stick with what you have. Your tv or box will upscale as well as the amp anyway.
