Looking at buying a 40" Samsung 720P LCD tv, and was wondering if there is any software that will upsample dvd and low res video such as wmvs/divx/xvid/x.264 that are encoded at less than 720 that I could run when needed on my HTPC.

One player you could use is Zoomplayer in conjunction with ffdhow. Get it here http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml

If you wanted to just upsample & playback media files, excluding wmv which requires an extra payment, over the DVD version, for the Microsoft license & DVDs, you could just install the free version.

It is very configurable but does have a learning curve to power use it. There are other options but am not sure on how to incorporate ffdshow into them.

Here's a guide to teach you the ins & outs of setting up ffdshow inside ZP. http://www.htpcnews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=132&Itemid=29
