    Does my new dish 811 upconvert everything to 1080i? If this is true, then do I only need to calibrate my 1080i and 480p inputs, or do I still need to do 480i?

    TIA-Greg

    It can, but remember if it looks like crap at 480i, it won't look better at 1080i [​IMG]

    IMO, you would want to calibrate whatever inputs are utilized.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the reply John. I want to do a ISF Cal., but money is tight and since I use my 811 for all TV, could I just skip the 480i input and save that $ since it upconverts?

    Thanks again- Greg

    Yes, you can save some cash this way-- I don't think it will be much, though. As for the 811, everything will be upconverted to 1080i if you set it up that way.
