Ok my questions are answered, thank you all. I have a Sony HD CRT rear projection tv. So an upscaling player would be little or no improvement in picture quality. Lcd, and Plasma would likely yield better results. How about Dlp tv's? I believe that true HD looks good whether satellite or cable broadcast. I had Comcast HD, looked great via Dvi, but the rest of the cable channels picture quality was below satellite broadcast!

What are you talking about double posts???????? I asked about a tube television and how that handles digital HD signal. Like a Sony tube glass 34" hdtv. My other post is about CRT PROJECTION a totally different thing, which is why you find it in rear projection Tv's.

Direct view & rear projection CRT are similar, 1080i native sets that probably also support 480p or 540p... in that case, presenting 480p works well from a regular progressive scan DVD player.
