Hello people, I have both my PS3 and Denon DVD-1940 connected via HMDI to my AV receiver (Denon AVR-4308) and I'd like to know if i should disable the receivers HDMI scaling capabilities since both players are already set to scale at 1080p and 720p respectively., The receiver is connected via HDMI to the TV (Pioneer PDP-508XD) and i can't say that i see any difference when i set the receivers scaling capabilities on or off. ps. I read a rather discouraging article recently about new generation TVs with HDMI 1.3a. It said that when a picture is received through HDMI at anything other than it's native resolution, ie. PAL up-scaled from 576i to 720/1080p, the TV can sense it ( through HDCP if i remember correctly) and disables all of it's picture processing filters thus letting your player only do all the job with no assistance from the TV. This is done so that HDTV can keep selling (Sky HD, Blue Ray and HD DVD) otherwise the picture up-scaled from your player then filtered and processed from the TVs filters would be a real challenge... Anyone heard about this???
