yeah, this confuses me too, whether its the linux box or the display...
on the same note, isnt it when I record, say a 720p program OTA, and my Xorg
is 1080p, Myth upscales it to 1080p? Im assuming that it is the same case
with playing the DVD...

MythDVD obviously does SOME sort of upconverting, or else: 
-videos would be horribly interlaced
-they would be in a small 720x480 window in the middle
