Hello,
With most AVR's when presented with a 1080p/24 signal from a BDP, the signal is going to be unaltered regardless if setup to upsample sources to 1080p. The sources which will be upsampled to 1080p will be DVD's, and your cable box. The DirecTV HDDVR actually sends a 1080p/24 signal so this too will be unaltered.

You stand much to gain by upgrading to a current generation AVR. Between decoding of True HD and DTS-MA and Room Correction, AVR's have really changed for the better.

One aspect where they remain static is the usual lack of meeting rated power. The upper end Onkyo's do meet their rated power as do upper line Denon and Yamaha's.

If you are running fairly efficient speakers, this will not be a huge issue, but if running inefficient speakers, definitely check out measurements of power output of the AVR's you are looking for.

If you provide a max budget you feel comfortable spending, be glad to recommend some receivers which meet their specs. Also, for 799 Dollars, Emotiva offers a true 200 WPC amplifier (XPA-5) which is an excellent value.
Cheers,
JJ

Hello,
Great news that Emotiva's SSP is finally ready to ship. Wonderful thing about Emotiva is that they offer a no questions asked return policy if you are not happy with what you have ordered.
Cheers,
