According to Crutchfield, there is no progressive scan. No other similar video processing is mentioned.

(Just to be clear, progressive scan only works with HDTVs.)

One would have to be insane to pay 900 dollars (1300 for the "enhanced version") for this set-up. The enhanced version still doesn't give you progressive scan. But, you do get "better" speakers, a multibrand remote, the same number of inputs/outputs, and a video-shielded subwoofer.

Basically, this is a 2.1 digital receiver (stereo with low effects channel) that applies effects to the stereo signal to make it sound like surround sound.

You could do A LOT better with 1300 (or even 800) dollars, especially if you are patient enough to find good deals.
