Does anyone know of any software that will Upscale a DVD to an HD resolution like many of the standalone DVD players on the market nowadays do?

A DVD cannot really be scaled up to look like a HD video file but good software on a powerful PC can do a good job - possibly better than an upscaling DVD player (The Toshiba XA2 HD-DVD player is possibly an exception - that is supposed to be the best)

Seems like you need an HTPC, good video card, preferably outputting over HDMI or DVI, zoomplayer and ffdshow.
