    Are there any apps that can upscale the video from a DVD to 720p or 1080i? I know meron sa PC but meron rin ba sa Mac?

    Up scale on the fly without having it pre-processed under FCP for real time viewing on a HDTV.

    Upscaling resolution on the fly on Windows is possible. Are there apps that can do this on a Mac?

    Havent heard of a program yet to upscale DVDs. Maybe we could ask some members who owns a Mac Mini and uses it as HTPC.

    For my DVD playback upscaling needs, I just use my Samsung DVD-HD841 player.

    It's nice to know there's a PC app for this. What is it?

    I think its Powerdvd.

    OT: By the way Boo we have the same line of Samsung HD player. Have you experience audio drops when connected thru HDMI and using bitstream setting in audio output?

    @ suavecito

    OT: Ours is a rear projection HDTV that takes in component and high-res VGA, not HDMI unfortunately. No audio drops on my end.

    So our little secret about this Samsung upscaler (illegal in the States) is out, eh?

    Sorry for the OT, tweek. If you do find that Mac upscaler, do sound off.
