  1. TV decision with 4K upscaling with DirectTV

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I want to replace the TV for my mother and she is currently using a 47" LG that's about 5-6YO and is 1080i. The viewing distance is roughly 15-16' but I only have room for a 60" display max....I have 54" of width but could go maybe another inch but that's pushing it. The PQ of her set is decent...
  2. Upscaling

    My Receiver, Onkyo TX-SR674 worked fine with Panasonic HDTV. It drove sound to both 5.1 system as well as TV speakers. (Previous post describes problem with TV speakers not working on new TV.) The Receiver is also capable (I seem to remember) of upscaling the video signal to 1080P. The new TV...
  3. MadVR - Upscaling important with 1080p source?

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I’ve been using using MPC-HC + LAV + MadVR for some time and recently decided to get it running as best as possible. I’d like to use Jinc in MadVR for my upscaling but wondering how important this is when I only have 1080p movies playing (obviously) in 1080p. Sure there’s a little filtering...

    What exactly does a 4K upscaling Blu ray player do? Does it do what it seems to say? Can i play a blu-ray disc or DVD disc and have it dispaly in 4K resolution? Of course it would be assumed you would need a 4K compatible Receiver and Projector along with the player. Anyone with information...
  5. Panasonic BDT210 DVD upscaling

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Hi, I have recently upgraded from a PS3 slim to a Panasonic BDT210. I am very impressed with the quality of the blu-ray picture, however, not so much with the picture quality from DVD. DVD pictures are grainy, with lots of noise (especially in very light/dark areas). I got a much better picture...

  9. Let's say you only had $200. Entry level blu-ray or superb upscaling DVD?

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    My screen is a 110" using an Epson 6100 1080p. Onkyo 705 and SVS speakers. No light at all in theater. Right now I have a normal cheapo DVD player. A friend loaned me his PS3 and some blu rays and I was able to switch back and forth from his unit to mine on the same Harry Potter scene...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm wondering if anyone could provide some comments on the quality of the upscaling and/or upconverting of the Yamaha RX-V861 and/or HTR-6080 receivers. My primary use for the receiver will be the video upscaling/upconverting, so if there's something better in this price range please feel free...
  11. upscaling?

    AV Home Theater
    I'm not sure if I am in the right place to ask this. But what, exactly is upscaling? From what I have read it means simply playing older movies on a blu-ray player? I have been out of circulation for several months and just getting back to Home Theatering. Kinda Scary. :yikes:
  12. Is there a high quality 7.1 with true upscaling for under 1000.00

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I keep seeing reviews but they make my head spin. It seems like the manufactures say one thing and the reviewers say something different. What have you found for under 1000.00 that provides the most bang for your buck.
  13. Upscaling 1080i or 1080p????

  14. Upscaling- Let the TV do it or a Scaler/High Def DVD player?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Okay here is a question I hope someone can answer. I recently bought the Sony 55" SXRD 1080p HDTV and a PS3. The PS3 was more of an impulse buy. I was in the store and they didn't have a Toshiba 1080p player and my brother and I want to test HD and Bluray since he has a HD DVD player, so I...

    Hi Everyone. We got a new tv that has HDMI inputs on it in our family room. I'd like to find a nice cheap DVD player with upscaling HDMI out to connect to it. I know the OPPO is great, but I'm trying to convince my wife to let me buy a new projector for the basement. For the...

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    I'm having a tough time trying to find a good budget non-MB player. I was almost ready to buy one from the Samsung series (Zoran chip), but Michael TLV recently wrote on AVSforum "Severe white crush on the unit. Horrible lack of detail on bright objects."...
