I'm using my Lite-On DVD burner for DVD playback on my existing 19in CRT.....and DVD's look great, but they're at 1:1 pixel ratio aren't they?

So if the HDTV can't upscale, then won't a stretched DVD lose PQ?

I'm assuimg that stretched means "double or increase size, but lose PQ"
I'm assuming that upscale means.."double or increase size, but maintain PQ via the TV's video processor".
