Here's the story: I'm wondering how much, if any, benefit/point there is me buying any processor given that my display is "only" a Sony KD34XBR960 Direct View tube. It is ISF calibrated. Equipment would be: Onkyo DV-SP 1000 (I know that both the DVDO and this share the SIL-504 chip, so I know I can't really improve much here, nor could I imagine doing much better, in terms of PQ.) HD Satellite receiver. Any number of video game systems, new and old. Viewing Distance: 6-8 feet, give or take. On the table is a very generous preorder sale price on DVDO's new VP30. I realize that the Sony 960 is considered a reference monitor, but I also know that the tube has its limitations. Some things I know I'll need in the future will be the HDMI switching, which, a 4X1 HDMI switcher isn't that much cheaper than the price I have on the table right now. I realize that a video processor offers a lot of nice things, customization, flexibility ,etc. etc. but my TV is going to be able to do so much. I recognize its limits. I guess I'm just trying to balance reality and overkill vs. anything else. I need you all to be my muses. Give it to me straight and without mercy.
