By the way, I bought mine for about $225, with shipping, as "B" stock (meaning refurbished). Since HDMI switching and upconversion will be showing up on affordable receivers in the near future, I couldn't see dropping a bunch of cash on something I'll replace in a year or so.

My 811 does not make enough difference to tell as I have it hooked to my Toshiba 40" RPTV with component and s-video. I can switch back and forth and they both look very good, but I cannot tell the difference on a SD channel. (I certainly can on an HD channel)
Bottom line, even though I'm thinking about upgrading the audio, I won't spend extra to get the upconvert.
