Recently, I bought a Sony DA3300ES AVR to upgrade my Sony DA2ES AVR. The upgrade includes HDMI jacks so I can include the outputs of my BD players and switch them to my HDTV.

On the front of the 3300 are numerous labels showing what the AVR is using. Among the many labels (i.e. HDMI and Neural Surround) there is the Faroudja Cinema label. A quick Google search revealed that the Faroudja label indicates that the AVR can do upconversion of the video signal. A check of the operating manual for the 3300 confirmed to me that the AVR can upconvert a 480 video signal to 1080.

My intent is to upconvert the composite video signals from LD players, a DVD player and a DirecTV receiver to 1080.

I was wondering if anyone has used such an AVR or a standalone box to upconvert video signals using the Faroudja software.. What does the PQ look like? Is it worthwhile?
