There is also another thing to consider, if your tv upscales all formats to a native format, then is your tv internal scaler better than the dvd player scaler? If so then you would get better video not using the upconversion feature of a dvd player.
I was just clarifying about up-converting since I didn't see anyone mention the point previously.

Good point about the TV as well.
