Hi all,

Here's a crazy Idea. I have some videos (Playstation 3 videos and 720p demo MPEGs) on my PC that are pretty High in Resolution (Around 1280x1024 and such) that I got off the net. The Videos dont seem to be upscaled and have fantastic clarity.

1st-Is there a way convert (downsize) the videos it to actual HDTV format (720p) and then put it on a DVD disk

2nd-Is there a player that will read it and actually display it at 720p and not 480 upscaled to 720?

I have a big screen Plasma TV and want to really see what it can do. I am tired of so called "HDTV" DVD players that only upscale images...

I believe the answer is no. You're only option is to buy HD-DVD hardware or Blue-ray hardware. Both of which I would advise against.

I guess one other option is to have a Component, VGA, or DVI output on your computer and plug it in to your TV directly (assuming your TV has that type of input)
