How's the Roamio Plus/Pro video scaler?

With my TiVoHD I've left it the resolution at "native" and let my 2009 Samsung 750 deal with scaling. Which means I have to live with blankouts when going back to the TiVo menu or when changing between channels that have different resolutions.

How's the Roamio's video scaler? Should I leave things in native mode or just set fixed 1080i so as to avoid any blanking?

i have it set to 1080p only and i am happy with it. 1080p/24 for netflix and youtube is the only time I have to deal with a switch.

I ran native on my premier but currently have my Roamio set only to 1080p60 and it looks good on my 65" Panasonic VT60

I think the scaler in the Roamio Pro is better than the scalar in my (several year old) Samsung LCD. I have it set to 1080p only and I'm extremely happy with it.

Happy owner of a TiVo Roamio Pro

mostly OK

I use three resolutions (and let the Roamio and TV sort it out when they handshake) on my Samsung 8000 series LCD and a Roamio...

720p (for native FOX, ABC and ESPN), 1080i and 1080p for the feeds supporting them.

I prefer no upscaling of 720 to 1080, and prefer native.

I use 1080P60 output on both my Roamios and just let them do the scaling. It does a good enough job scaling broadcast content to 1080P.

I just got my Roamio today, and I am going to give it a go with 1080p60 and 1080p24 and see how it suits me. I am thrilled by the functionality of the Roamio so far, but I'd really like to put the HDMI handshake issues behind me. Constantly having to mess around to get audio back. I hadn't even realized that the Roamio offered 1080p60 as a choice, so that was a HUGE surprise plus.
