    I should pick one of those DVD players that uploads to 1080i. Anyone using it?

    Would be nice if this came out in windows media hi def - those look fantastic.

    I have a scaler in my home theater pc - does a fairly decent job but its still not magic. Works well on the 8 foot screen though. Videos look wonderful there. Frank, does your bigscreen have vga or dvi inputs? If so, you could hook up your pc temporarily to it - looks fantastic. I have a 56 inch samsung as well and it looks fantastic with and htpc hooked up to it.

    Hi Steve,

    Hooked up via DVI. So I would this 10801 DVD player avoid having to resize for full screen? The 2:5.31 (whatever it is) DVDs do look sweet but that's after resize.

    I was thinking about putting the PC on but the TV only has one DVI input and 2 comps ins. Guess I would need a box of sorts.

    The scaler should be outputting native hi-def res so your tv doesnt have to do that work.

    ATI has a DVI to component adapter i think. That can be a decent option. I actually have my big(ger) screen on a projector hooked up through vga and the smaller 56 through DVI on a different htpc.

    The scaler dvd players would likely have component or HDMI.

    The nice thing about the computer as a scaler over the upconverting dvd players is the ammount of control you have over the final image. You can completely taylor your pic to the display (for example, my projector isnt high def but my 56er is) - each is completely taylored to that image (sharpness, etc). You just dont have that kind of control with the dvd scalers.

    You can get a regular resolution dvd looking very good (if its a good dvd, some are not so good at all - Braveheart for example is unwatchable in my opinion on a large screen, whereas Lord of the Rings is a thing of beauty). Some dvds have far more information on them and scale beautifully (futureshop just sold off al their superbit dvds very cheaply - they are great for scaling).
