This usually looks best when scaling to a resolution whose dimensions are an integer multiple of the source image, like going from 800x600 to 1600x1200 for example.
Yeah, defiantly got the terminology confused if that's the case. I assumed it was the way I said it because of how there are DVD players that upscale 480p to 1080i content.
