FIXED in firmware 1.50!
PS1/PS2 upscaling in 1.80! But it's not REAL upscaling. Why? Cause the polygons themselves aren't rendered in high def, the entire image output is just put through a filter to make it look upscaled. The same method is used for upscaling DVD picture quality to 720p/1080i/1080p.

The glitch shown in this video only occurs on firmwares earlier than 1.5!
