This is directed to you hardcore coders. Could a program be written that would convert Toaster Flyer video to HDTV? Especially since the code is available on the Open Toaster Source site. Think of how DCTV converts standard Amiga 4 bit and 8 bit plane images to 24 bit images on the fly. It be great upgrade. Would it be possible with out hardware updates? Since that is not likely to happen with the Amiga Toaster.Thanks

Lightwave on the Toaster/Flyer has settings to alow for proper rendering to HD values but you would need to take the files and output them using a PC in order to be true 1080i.
As far as the Flyers video output you would need to upconvert it externally to HD as the Toaster is NTSC 480i only. but if you have a good quality source like DV or other digital video upconversion can look very good.
