I can attest, though, that standard TV upscaled in MythTV does look  
better on my projector than when I give it an SVHS signal and let it  
do the upscaling on its own.  YMMV, of course.  My projector is  
800x600, so poor prescaling of DVDs is particularly obvious -- it  
produces annoying stairstep jaggies.
