    Here is what I plan to use it with:
    Hughes Satellite Receiver
    JVC 7600 S-VHS player
    Sony KP51WS520 CRT-RPTV.

    I plan to hook the Hughes receiver to the JVC and in to the I-Scan Pro and then with the patch cords out into the HD compatible Component input on the Sony. My understanding is that I-Scan will scale 480i to 480p and the Hi-Scan Modulation will scale the signal via Component to 1080i. I'm I correct on this, is anyone else doing what I plan to do. I watch a good bit of standard t.v. via stretch mode and thought the picture was ok, but I really want to improve it. Is this how the I-Scan should work.

    Not exactly. I have a very similar setup - an I-Scan Ultra feeding a Sony CRT set (KP-46WT510).

    The set only upscales to 1080i when being fed standard 480i interlaced sources. A 480p source will be displayed as 480p. That said, all of my sources (DVD, LD, VHS) look superior via I-Scan than they do letting the TV do the deinterlacing/scaling.

    Well, that's good enough for me. My understanding is the patch cord will allow you to patch from S-VHS and out through component.
