    Say I have a 720p .MKV file and I want to play it on my HDTV via my DVD player (going to buy a blu-ray soon, but anyway). How would I do this? Would I have to convert it or something?

    What's the best way to do this?

    What about connecting your Mac (MBP) to the HD TV via HDMI or any other digital input your TV might offer?

    Is your DVD player even capable of transmitting a video signal to the HD TV, that offers (the signal) HD resolution? Something besides composite, S-Video or component? Something digital would be best.

    You need to re-encode the video then burn it. There are guides all over google.

    You can, if you reencode it, but it wouldn't be HD. DVD players aren't capable of HD playback.

    You could try encoding in xvid, check your dvd player regarding xvid support. Other than that you have to connect your computer to the tv for hd content
