    Since we are talking about this kind of stuff...............

    In theory, should an ucompressed full bandwidth SD (480i) picture look as good as an HD one DOWNREZZED to 480i??

    I also find that I get a better picture through component than HDMI, weather thats because of my tv's HDMI input or the 10-250 output, I don't know, I would lean towards the 10-250. Tv is a mitsubishi DLP.

    I have done this many times. I have a Sony RDRVX515 (DVD/VHS combo) connected to the H10-250. It works flawlessly. Just remember to set your resolution on the H10 back down to 480i, otherwise you won't get any output.

    In theory, full SD *should* actually be better than down-rezzed HD due to fewer conversions and the like. In practice (in my experience), down-rezzed HD looks better in most cases. Maybe it's due to the initial filming techniques and attention to detail.

    YMMV

    So to see what we have been missing all these years thanks to ALL providers, just set any HD channel to 480i and see what we should be getting. Hard to believe.
