It scales it to 1080P24 on the Mini, at least when playing back Netflix. But not from a broadcast source. When set to 1080P24 and when streaming a netflix title, as soon as you start streaming the title, it will be output in 1080P24, even though it's playing an SD stream at the beginning. That can only happen if it is being upscaled to 1080P24.
Most broadcast content needs to be at 60P or 30P so there would be no point in using 1080P24 with it.
I do wish TiVo went with a different chip that could scale to 1080P60 output. If they come out with a new Mini with that capabilty, then I will be selling my two launch Minis to replace them with ones capable of scaling all content to 1080P60.
EDIT: I see the Mini also outputs Youtube in 1080P24.
Aren't the Youtube and Netflix app newer versions?
EDIT: I see also the menus of both Netflix and Youtube are output in 1080P24. I had thought Netflix switched to 1080P24 when streaming a title but it is in 1080P24 as soon as the app is started. So it must just be these newer apps that can be output in 1080P24.
