I am looking to upgrade the video quality of my system using a scaler. I have read lots (and lots and lots) over the past few weeks and am now more confused than ever about what I can/cant do and what works/doesnt work. My current system is: Pioneer 868AVi DVD player Panasonic TH37PV500 Plasma Pioneer AX10i Amp Xbox PS2 Sky+ I route both audio and video through the amp. The connections are: DVD -> Amp : iLink + Component XBox -> Amp : Optical + S-Video PS2 -> Amp : Optical + S-Video Sky+ -> Amp : Optical + Component (via Keene Aptus1 Scart to Component convertor) Amp -> Plasma : Component I have a Pioneer AX4AVi on the way which will support HDMI (as do the DVD and Plasma). I will use this to switch all audio and video. As I would like to take advantage of the Plasma's 720p / 1080i support I am wondering which scaler would best meet my needs. The questions: Do I pass everything from the new amp as HDMI and scale that (and worry about HDCP conformity) or just stay with scaling the component signal which I pass to the plasma at the moment. Which scaler would be recommended. I want to stick with the amp switcing everything (although this may not be the best solution).
