I'm looking for a network media player to play movies *divx and/or mpeg* from a server, I am trying to find one that will upscale the video without using a full HTPC.

Any recommendations, I'm having a really hard time finding products that do this, or any real details on them.

The Popcorn Hour outputs video at whatever resolution you choose. I suspect that all of the NMT's do this as well.

I get the feeling he's looking for video processing beyond stretching a signal to a given resolution. I know these devices have on-board processors but I don't know what chips they are using or if they are any good.

There is nothing out there that has the power of the dedicated DCDi or Reon if thats what your after.....
