I didn't see you mention anywhere the resolution and/or bitrate that the SD
recordings were captured with, nor the capture card/method.

I find that SD upscaled on my C2D 2200 frontend to a 21.6" LCD connected via
HDMI->DVI cable (1680x1050) look decent from a few feet away.  Granted, HD
programs look much better. basically photo quality, but SD doesn't look
anywhere near as bad to me as what you're describing.

(Note: That's an 0.21-fixes box, last updated about a month ago - if you
need an exact revision or playback profile settings, I'll check later
