Default Does the 360's HD DVD drive upscale DVDs?

Does the 360's HD DVD drive upscale DVDs? Does the 360 by itself upscale DVDs? What resolution can the 360 or the HD DVD drive upscale a DVD to?

If I can use the 360 Elite + the HD DVD drive to upscale my DVDs I will not need to buy a stand alone HD DVD player. I looked around the internet and I did not find the answers to these questions.

360 does the upscaling.

HDMI probably is the same as using a VGA cable so it will do it all the way up to 1080p.

Gamestop will most likely do a pre-order. I pre-ordered the 360 at Gamestop 5 months before launch (the name 360 hadn't even been announced yet, I reserved an "Xbox 2" ) Then on launch day, I walked in, and walked out with a 360. That easy.

The current 360 will upscale dvds to 1080p via VGA, or it will upscale to 480p via component.

AKA not at all, since that's standard dvd resolution.

I love my 360 but it sux as an upscaler, can hardly tell it does anything at all. The Elite will come with true(?) upscale/upconversion out of the box, no add-on necessary except for HD DVD playback.
