I don't record very much stuff in sdtv anymore, and part of that which I 
do (mostly BSG and SG-* off SciFi), I greatly prefer myth doing the 
scaling, since its actually 16:9, letterboxed inside 4:3, which mythtv 
makes fit perfectly on my screen, using the full 16:9. But the other 
stuff looks pretty much indistinguishable from the sdtv channels that 
come out of my cable box to the TV (my cable box is a motorola dct-6200, 
also hooked up via DVI). Not a clue what the scaler is in my TV.
