One of the big selling points about these HDMI DVD players is the upscaling feature. A lot of people seem to imply they'll somehow improve your image/dvds to HD quality.
While a HDMI cable might give a clearer signal, i don't see how a SD source can be upscaled to HD quality - it all strikes me as a marketing con similar to digital zooms on cameras. Am i right or wrong?
one other thing, even if your HDMI DVD player didn't do upscaling, wouldn't your TV do it anyway?
