Good evening / Morning paper,

Good question;
This is something that I am looking into Composite to HDMI.

A retailer of trust is making a few phone calls for me, and so hopefully I shall have an update in the next few weeks or longer.
Available funds are a little thin, but the retailer discussed and we agreed on myself placing a deposit when something reasonable and suitable is found.

I shall let you know,

Kind Regards to you

The good news is that if the upscaling isn’t good, it’s an Onkyo so it will probably lose a channel or have its fan die or something in like a year and a half and you can buy something better. :)

I've never experienced a single issue with my Onkyo, and touch wood I won't have any problems in the near future either.

My 626 was bought refurbed from A4L and has been wonderful for some time now. The onboard Marvell qdeo scaling is reputed to be very good and much better than older faroudja dcdi but since I primarily use my xbr960 I haven't tried it that much.

The composite output of my Pioneer 704 looks FANTASTIC straight into my Sony 4K (55" 810C). The Video essentials moving zone plate test is ridiculously clear on all the problem areas. I was floored. The comb filter and upscaling on the Sony is amazing.

I've used a Panasonic DMR-ES10 with component out as well as a Sony RDR-GX255 with HDMI output and the bare composite into the Sony 4K wins head and shoulders above both. No comparison. Also, my Onkyo is supposed to upscale analog video to HDMI but that has never worked consistently and when it did the PQ was not great.

I was looking into getting one of those Leitch DPS units but after getting the new TV and seeing the results I had no desire to buy anything else to make LDs look better.

EDIT: Actually, I lied the composite is currently going through my Onkyo TX-SR705 and being output by the Onkyo as composite into the Sony 4K. However, I did initially test it straight in and it was superb (still is too!).


YMMV HTH FTW OMG!

I am experiencing the very same thing with my new 4K TV. Have utilized many processors such as DVDO, Extron, and Faroudja NRS along with a couple of DVD recorders and a plasma from Panasonic and none of the have produced anywhere near as clean of a S&W zone plate as my new TCL 55P605, see attachment.
Now for actual content the Faroudja Pictue Perfect Plus NR Series sending 720p has the best look for LD. The NRS also has more color bandwidth showing more color saturation in the color resolution bars at the bottom of the S&W zone plate test. Although I could easily live with composite straight to this TV, it’s that good.
