Normal: upscales preserving the correct aspect ratio. This is the best choice IMHO.

Full Screen: stretches to fit a 16:9 display.

Double Scale: I believe this simply doubles the pixels horizontally and vertically rather than applying interpolation. This results in a look that is technically more accurate to the original game/DVD since it is preserving the pixelation, rather than smoothing it out like the other scaling options. This is only available with 1080i/p output (since 720 doesn't have enough pixels to double scale). Personally, I might use this for PS2 games but not for DVDs.

Off: it is what it is. This just sends it as 480p to your display to let it handle scaling.
