I think I have heard even by March, but Sony is working on it.

I found it not to be much of issue, because my TV upscales find.

I have also heard that HDMI 1.3 recievers will also upscale.

i dunno why people care for upscaling DVD so much. Its honestly not that big of a deal but yea, rumors have it that it will be soon but it could just be a baseless web rumor

Yeah, HDTV's are more than capable of scaling 480p to their native resolution, so I don't get it either.

I think because some people use projectors, which don't upscale. Depends on the output source mostly.

But isn't it better to let the projector run at the source resolution then, and just expand the image? I would think a progressive 480p image from DVD would look better than any upscaled image.

I couldn't tell you unless I had an option to see both of them. Unfortunatley I don't. My projector for now, only does 720p, so it's not a huge loss. My reciever does do horizontal upscaling, however not vertical. So, though it might look great in 720p, I'll never know. I haven't heard anyone complaining about the upscaled movies on the Toshiba XA2, so I doubt it's going to make the picture look worse. 480p (native) vs. 720p (upscalled), I'd love to compare the two.

It just something HD DVD fans and Anti-Sony fans like to put down on the PS3. Once they solved the problem, they will find something else to complain about. Always state its only a console and such. Very foolish stuff.
