If I have my XBox 360 set to 720p and I play a DVD in it, does it upscale the DVD to 720p or does it play it at 480p?

Many thanks.  I figured, but didn't have any way to prove one way or the other.

Andrew beat me to it. I was curious myself and looked it up:

"The Xbox 360 supports full rendering at various resolutions including 480p, 720p, and 1080i for its games, but DVD playback is limited to 480p"

I think DVDs look really good on the xbox and my widescreen flat panel.

The difference in quality between 360 DVD playback and my dedicated progressive-scan player is startling. The image isn't as crisp on the 360 and the colors are completely washed out. One of many big disappointments that I've had with the media features of the 360.

I agree. I tried out a DVD on the 360 but quickly went back to my standalone proscan DVD player.

Maybe it me, but I like my DVD on my 360.
