Let me add myself to the list.

I've got a DVD of analog PAL-sourced video. It is the highest-quality version of this particular footage that commonly exists (aside from a PAL laserdisc, but I digress). It is PAL because the cameras used to shoot it over 20 years ago were PAL.

I want to be able to play it in its native format, which will allow my external scaler to deal with the PAL weirdness in ways that a computer-oriented scaler (aka, Kodi + modern graphics hardware) is simply unaware of.

I mean, I could wait for a Blu-Ray release, but I can do the same processing that such a release would entail at home right now...unless it involves Kodi.

Add me to the list. My Panasonic 4K TV does a substantially better job at upscaling ny UK tv. The 1080i channels are almost undistinguishable from a native 4K picture. Even the SD channels look reasonable. That's however not the case when letting Kodi do the upscaling, even using SPMC with the additional scaling options.
