so they are encoded interlaced and then are scaled to progressive or just pumped out interlaced? i always thought they would be progressive NTSC or PAL which was why dvds were better quality. feels like i'm taking steps backwards in my understanding.

dvds are 720x480...the hi-def dvds you talk about are WMV-hi-def dvds..theres 3 currently in this format,with more to follow suit..big thread in htpc section if you're interested.

It should be pointed out that although stored as frames the content of the frames are vertically filtered for interlace display. If they weren't a DVD displayed on a standard NTSC TV would flicker terribly.

Also, the Criterion site says they are releasing a few new titles that were 'scanned in HD' (Charade for one). What exactly does that mean? Does anyone know?

Criterion is definitely gonna get me killed if the new Charade release is just the beginning of more re-issues that replace letterbox for anamorphic transfers. I'm gonna have to duplicate my current Criterion copy for this one and the wife will go ballistic.
edit: Oh yeah and...
Those links will help you understand.
