How do I upscale DVDs on my PC to play on my HDTV LCD???
 
I have my PC hooked to my HDTV from the PCs DVI-D port to the TVs HDMI port. Everything works as it should and downloaded HD videos play and look great. Now all I need to do is find a way to upscale DVDs. There must be a way. Anybody have any ideas???

AFAIK, it's pretty much automatic on a PC when you're using a digital connection. The graphics card has an internal scaler and automatically upscales any DVD you play to whatever your desktop resolution is. Nothing special is required.

Well, I tried it and it sure looks like you're right. WMP11 won't play the DVD's on the HDTV. I get some message about it can't upscale protected content. But WinDVD plays it just fine and the DVD's look great at 720p.

I have and it seems way to complicated to me. Besides, it really does appear that the DVDs are being upscaled when i move the WinDVD window from my 15" HP LCD to my 37" HDTV LCD.

Well obviously they will be scaled somehow, but I think FFDSHOW has superior processing of the scaling.

Sorry but theres no click click program that will do all that, just do it step by step and you'll be fine.

I agree with JamesDax. It's way too much work just to get upscaled DVD output through FFDShow when other applications do it without all the configuration contorsions. It's not as if FFDShow produces a massively better picture for all the effort you have to put into it.

If you read that thread, thats exactly what it does. It makes image quality better.
Upscaling is done automatically when you maximize the dvd on a pc monitor or a 1080p tv, if you want it to look sharper and better you go to that thread and do what they say.
