many people say the ps3 is the best upscaler around for now.

i heard that the ps3 is capable if you have HDMI ,but it wont do it over component cables.

I think it depends on what you're watching. Besides movies, I watch a lot of older anime, and it doesn't upscale very well on my PS3. However, it looks much better on my 360 HD DVD drive ... of course, my PS3 plays better with my TV, so it just depends. However, I think, in general, you get very good upconversion with the PS3, especially if you're watching more recent releases.

PS3 is not bad, not great. Better than the cheapo players, but nothing compared to the HQV or Reon-based players.

I had two previous upconvert dvd players and I think my PS3 does the best job of upconverting standard DVDs, even better than my HD DVD player.

I read an interview with the Sony developers and they believed the PS3 still had another 40% or so of improvement possible in the DVD upscaling department. It sounds like the engineers really treat it as a personal challenge to make the PS3 as good as possible, I was surprised to hear that they even considered the DVD stuff worth working on.

For me, the HD DVd player upscales better than the PS3...that is just my honest opinion

40% according to the HQV score? Or is this just a random number to make us feel better?

Thats awesome and thanks for that link to article. I def think the upconversion could stand a bit of improvement but I am not complaining.
I got mine for games and bluray.
The hardest part for me is waiting to replace my dvd collection with bluray.

Hurry up and wait!

p.s.
Where do you get firmware updates and how do I know which firmware I have. I got the 80g bundle with Spiderman 3. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

arigato!
