New to this but want the best. I have ordered and am receiving a Pio 5000EX on Wednesday 23/8/06 and Sky HD installation 9/9/06 , After reading all the posts for info on VP's and the various settings (from stoomonster ) I am wondering how good the VP conversion section of the 5000EX is ?, if the sky hd via HDMI is set to 1080i the Pio has to deinterlace to 1080p. so the question is, In the opinion of the various Experts on the forum, would the inprovement gained from either the CrYstallo II or the Lumagen VP's converting 576i upto 1080p justify the outlay of almost 2/3's the cost of the plasma ? How "bad" is the video processing straight out of the box for the Sky & Pioneer ? Any thoughts and suggestions as to the way to go ? also want to get a good dvd to go with it when there are a few more HD titles about,?
