Default XBOX 360 w/ HDMI = Better SD DVD upscaling?

I've seen some speculation around the net about the newer 360's with HDMI (or elites as well I assume) having better SD DVD playback/upscaling. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I had a 360 about 6 months ago connected via VGA to my 1080p LCD and DVD playback seemed pretty good. I'm looking to buy another 360 at some point and I'm wondering if SD DVD playback will be improved. If so, then I'll buy one much sooner because I currently use my PS2 to play SD DVD's.

Nothing yet?

I suppose I should have put "VS. TEH PS3" at the end of the title if I wanted this thread to get more attention.

I have the new Premiums w/ HDMI. I haven't tried using the 360 fro upconverting a DVD because I use my PS3 for that.

But next time I watch a movie, I'll play in both and compare the two.

I'd really appreciate that! Thanks!
