The people at Edge said yes. I want to see if that is true and exactly how to do it.
I guess I was not clear enough. The people at Edge are technically correct, but it all depends on the input you've got on your DVD recorder. The Edge output is via HDMI. Unless your DVD/Blu ray burner has an HDMI input you cannot do what you want. The whole idea behind HDMI is to stop people from copying DVDs and Blu-Rays.
If you really want to do this, look into getting a Hauppauge HD PVR, a good up-scaling Blu-Ray (or an Edge), and something to convert (such as the ViewHD) the HDMI output to VGA/component. The Hauppauge HD PVR only takes analog input and re-encodes it. This re-encoding step makes things look a very little bit softer than the original.
The truth be known, after going through all that ... your video still isn't going to be vastly improved. If it looks like junk on your original DVD, it will still look like junk after this. What the Edge and other scalers do is make good looking DVDs look fantastic. I've been told that the scalers on most new TVs also do this, so you might not even notice any improvement.
