I've read (yeah, like I can quote my source, take this with a grain
of... sand) that you want scaling to be finished by the time it
reaches your display device.  It is certainly possible for your
[projector/tv/plasma] to scale an input resolution from 800x600 to
1600x1200.  But (again, whatever I read I can't remember where it was,
maybe it was this list...) the best scaling is done on your hardware
nearest the video output (so for us in our PC's) and so if possible,
scale at the source and not at the display.
