Yes. Upscaling of HDD or Network streamed media was added in a firmware update mid 2008.

(Ps3 Media Server will do a better job than TVersity btw ;))

I assume it will output at whatever resolution you set it to. Certainly if you ran it through an AV system upscaling would occur if set to do so.

As I run my PS3 through an AV system I cannot verify if the native video stream is upscaled...

Uridium is right, depends on your TV. Your PS3 would (probably) try to upscale to 1080p or i, but if your TV is 'HD Ready' then it would take a 1080i source and downscale itself to closer to 720...

Either way depends on your TV! If it supports 1080p output from the PS3 SHOULD be better...
