the hardware scaling isn't that bad, we watch 480i content quite a bit
on our 65" 1080p tv and its not horrid. 1080i and 720p content gets
"scaled/converted" by the tv to 1080p better than Myth will do so its
not really worth it.

yes. software scaling is something being looked into by some folks on
the dev list.
