Default Up-conversion question

Hi All -
I'm a bit confused - if most (or all) HD TVs up-convert, do I need a DVD player that up-converts too? And if I have a TV and a DVD player which both up-convert the signal, how does that play out? (Is the signal upconverted twice?)

That's the most logical reason for not getting a UC player. But some players have a better conversion process or other video enhancements.
But they are only noticeable on the best UC players, and depend on compatibility with your display, and work best with the best DVD movies.
Again, the differences are not great. It is nothing to lose sleep over.
