It's not native 1080p, so really no point. Basically a slightly improved 480p.

Actually he's pointing out the Sony receiver that upscales it to 1080p. It seems to be doing a decent job too.

I'm aware. It's really difficult to tell the difference between 1080p upscaled and 480p through photo's on the internet. It will just make things brighter, if anything.

It still isn't worth paying $5200 in electronics costs for the TV and the receiver. Fuck a bunch of that.

Give me a dollar.

Your tv already scales everything to it's native resolution. You are just relying on a seperate component to do a better job. Depending on your components it could look better or worse depending on what TV you have and how good it's video processor is compared to the receiver.

If you want to do this cheaper get a onkyo tx-sr605 for $399 and you can scale it to 720p.

For Wii bowling alone it would be worth it, are you kidding!

Agreed, you can do it with other receivers for cheaper, as well.
