Upconverting to 1080P



I'm looking for a receiver or Home Theater system that upconvert from any imput like s-video or composite to 1080p resolution, I know that out there it is a receiver with the capabilities to do it but I don't understand why all companies after expending millions on design they keep short in the description of the abilities of their receivers. Any sugestion??

See if the manufacturer names the upconversion chip they're using. Fajouda (spelling?), Silicon Graphics etc, then look up spec on those.

Most would go for a separate scaler, and use receiver for audio. If you're interested in s-video and composite, then capable SD 2nd hand scalers are out there from Centerstage, Lumagen, DVDO.

From using my Wii today, I can assure you that even at only 1024x768, a composite picture doesn't look nice at all. Bearable though. Good quality s-video works well through a scaler.
