Video escalation - Does it really work?
Hello, this year I moved to a modern AVR which has video escalation to 1080p which is supposed to improve low quality files. I am using the AVR with the PS3 and I watch a lot of low quality file files which are in .AVI format most of the time. I am using a projector, therefore the artifacts become much more visible. The result that I get most of the times is pretty bad, so I do not know whether this function does anything at all.
I have switched on the escalation in the AVR settings however, I do not find any difference or better said improvement at all, on the contrary, I even think that the files look even worse than when they did not go through the AVR and went directly from the PS3 to the projector.
Could I be doing something wrong? Is it possible that the PS3 is already escalating the files to 1080p therefore when they get to the AVR, the AVR does not do anything. How should I set both up correctly in order to get the best results?
