Is there a DVD player that converts normal DVDs to HD quality on an HDTV?

My mother said she saw a DVD player that you could put a regular DVD into, hook it up to an HDTV, and it would play the DVD with a high-definition quality. Does such a thing exist?

Search for Up-converting DVD Players.
Notice that some up-convert to 1080i an others to 1080p.
1080i is interlaced, used on HDTV transmitting stations.
1080p is progressive, used in Blu-ray disks.
They do a very good job, but the end-result is not as good as those originally recorded at 1080i or 1080p.
By the way, you need HDMI on your TV, if you use Component it will not up-convert to 1080 i or p.

How do you connect a laptop to an HDTV for streaming movies?

I have a laptop computer with a VGA connection and my son in law says that I just need to get a VGA to HDMI cable and connect the two, BUT when I get online to order this cable I have come across some reviews indicating that the cable is not enough, that a converter is needed. Do any of you techno minded people know what I need to do. All I am interested in is using my television as my monitor and streaming movies from my laptop.

You do need a Converter. VGA is analog HDMI is digital. Those cables are for studio equipment that has onboard converters.

You will need 1 VGA cable, 1 HDMI cable, and the active converter box.
For sound, connect a Stereo to RCA cable
