Does the Xbox 360 upconvert standard DVDs to HD fairly well?

8 replies 7 views Edited Jan 7, 2007
Topic says it pretty well.

I have a lot of older movies that I recorded to a DVD off of TiVo (using this handy YesDVD dodad that burns DVDs from a video source) and I want to know how well my 360 can play them on an HDTV I'm thinking of getting. Alternatively, I have to buy an upconverting DVD player, which would really suck.

Thanks in advance!

If you use the VGA cable it will upconvert the dvd to HD quality but it's okay. Not that great.

It was a bit better than a regular DVD player?

Hmmm...

You'd think with such a powerful machine it could do the simple job of upconverting pretty easily.

Because it only upconverts via VGA cable.
