Question 1080i stream upscale to 1080p via HTPC

Hi,
I'm building a HTPC which [amongst other toys] will house Terrestial Digital video and Satellite HD record and playback.

Re HD 1080i stream from either satellite, Internet or Terestial HD source . Once recorded to my HTPC hard drive . . can I then upscale it via software to 1080p before sending it out of HTPC to my HD TV screen. Or can this be done via hardware [Graphics card] or combination of the two.

Clear as mud ? Thanks to anyone who can shed a little light on this.

My HTPC will run Vista and Vista 64 bit.

ps . . Anyone know of a card for recording Terrestrial HD programming [For the UK when it becomes available . . or is that wishful thinking with knobs on]

Thanks.

What you want to do is called deinterlacing. It makes a 1080p signal out of your 1080i recordings on during playback. Very likely your playback software will have options regarding this.

Are you in the UK? I guess you will be recording a h264/AVC encoded signal then.
