This is interesting. I wonder what VHS looks like at 1080i? Is this as good as getting an HDMI DVD player? It seems to be a good deal if it is.

I wonder if it will do any better than the upconversion already built in to the TV? A DVD player can upconvert itself a little better than the TV because it has access to the raw image data before sending it out over component or s-video, while this box would get the same analog signal as the TV. I'd guess this will only help if your TV is known to have poor scaling.

Good point. The quality of my upconverting DVD player is a LOT better than the scaling of my TV. And it has what is considered good scaling.
