    Having a 1080p source will yeild a better picture even on a 720p set. One reason is because the source is progessive scan. Another reason is that having more detail to start with then downconverting looks better than upconverting from a source with less detail.

    Don't forget that the audio (which in my opinion is more important than the video) is also alot better than a typical DVD. Most of the Blu-ray discs feature an uncompressed 5.1 PCM audio track and some of the HD-DVDs use lossless compression codecs to recreate the original studio master audio track! Also, all HD-DVD movies have a Dolby Digital Plus audio track that is better than the Dolby Digital audio track on most DVD movies.
