Default ? about 360

I feel kinda dumb asking this, but does the Xbox 360 (not the add on) upconvert regular dvds? I know it can output 720p or 1080p, given the right setup, but I'm not sure if that's the same as upconverting. Thanks!

a lot of people are misinformed when it comes to this but SickSol is correct for sure.

Wait, what?

So you two are saying that when I put a standard DVD into my 360 and have it output to my monitor at 720p through my VGA cable (and yes, I've verified that it's outputting at 720p even when playing a DVD), that's not upconverting? Isn't that precisely what upconverting is?

A bit of clarification would be great.

Any 360 can upscale through VGA (you have to buy the cable separately) and any newer 360 with HDMI can upscale.

SickSol is wrong for sure.

Do I need to do any certain setup for it to upscale? Or is setting it at 720p/1080p and having it hooked up via VGA/HDMI enough?

don't watch DVDs on the 360. It's a terrible DVD player.
