13. If it's the creators doing the enhancement, well why not? It's their work to do with as they please.

The funny thing is that most people simply let their smart televisions do up-scaling and other enhancements, paying little attention to their televisions picture and sound enhancement settings, which can be adjusted.

When I see televisions in other people's homes they are usually set up for some unnatural looking "sports" or color-enhancing mode that I find irritating. Or worse, some "brilliant" mode that is only meant to sell televisions to shoppers in the big box stores.

Okay, I'm some kind of Luddite. My favorite video format is DVD and my favorite movies are all the sorts of stories that can be told perfectly well with 480p video and simple stereo sound.

When the DVD format was new great care was taken when movies were down-scaled from the original film to get the the highest possible quality from the DVD format. Alas, modern DVDs often look and sound like they were down-scaled for the WalMart bins using some default setting in an automated process.
