I have the 57S700 and recently followed others advice here and changed the output resolution to 1080i. You hit the red button under the door in the front until the top line is lit. This upconverts even the SD channels to 1080i. And, if you are like me, you don't like Hitachi's edge morphing. Actually, I was very dismayed at how bad the Hitachi 540p/1080i unconversion looked when I first got it. The awesome HD picture is the only reason I kept it. Anyway, this smooths out the picture and makes it look similar to ESPN's SportsCenter on ESPNHD.
