I purchased a ps3 for my wife for xmas and the only thing I want to use as is a blu-ray player. However, with its divx support, I can now stream movies to it like the xbox. My question is, if I use a divx converter, like winavi, will I be able to convert my old movies to an hd format like 720p or 1080i? I know nothing about video conversion, but I have read that with tvverstiy, or something like that, I can stream hd content. I think I know how to stream, but I am unsure if I could take an older movie, like Independence Day, and convert it to an hd format, like 1280x720 and have it be true hd and not just upconversion. I know 1080p is considered "true" hd. I guess what I am asking is, is it possible to take a movie that was originally meant to be displayed at a maximum resolution of 480p and convert it to 720p or higher? And if it is, what all do I need to know in regards to conversion, streaming, and decoding, and how it relates to pc and network limitations.
A link to a well written, articulate article would be lovely.
Thanks in advance to all responses to this matter.
