Apple TV and Front Row

Is playing a 720p video in Front Row on a MBP connected to a 1080p hdtv same as playing a 720p movie on Apple TV?

When will Front Row be upgraded to the new Apple TV UI?

No, AppleTV upscales the video to 1080p for you - your MBP does no so your HDTV will upscale it - depending on your TV that might be good or it might not. Also HDMI is a much cleaner clearer picture which you can not get via MBP IMO.

In my opinion it wont. The AppleTV pushes rentals - thats iTunes job on the Mac.
