As people have said, if you have something else in your video chain that will scale better than the Tivo. That means almost everything.
Most TV's (except budget-brands) will scale better.
Certainly if you have a video processor in the middle, it will definitely scale better.
If it's just a TV, you might not care. Personally, I have:
- My HT set to Native (because I have an expensive video processor that is way better at scaling)
- My old 50" 1080i TV Tivo set to 1080i (because that TV is about as good as the Tivo)
- My small 40" bedroom TV set to 1080i (because it's too small to see any difference)
Hope this helps.
