Just make sure that you send the SD progam content from your new Dish STB to the TV in 480i and that you output to the TV from your DVD player in 480i normal mode and not in progessive mode.

I know this varies from set to set, but while we will be getting HD DishNetwork service and a Blu-Ray player, we still have a lot of DVD's, particularly TV series collections.
I am just wondering how bad they might look on our new TV?

As long as you use a good upconverting dvd player, they will look pretty good. That's the key, because if you use an older dvd player with analog connections, you will get a worse picture.

I own a DENON 2930 dvd-upscaler & a PS3 bluray-player,dvd's look much better on the PS3/1080P LCd TV.
Thethreadstarter was talking about buying a bluray-player/1080P LCd,no word about a upconverting dvd-player .
