It can be, though through Myth not nearly as much if at all since you
can do what those TV's will be doing in Myth.
With a standard feed (cable, antenna, etc) the processing can help for
deinterlacing, scaling, etc. Of course, quality in will determine
quality out, and the better processing algorithms will do more with
poor input.
