Dvd Recorder that upconverts??????

All,

Does anyone know of a good dvd recorder that also upconverts to 720p/1080i via HDMI and/or DVI? I want to get an upconvert player but thought I might as well look at recorders while I am at it. Also, are the recorders still doing only 2.0 sound recording or are they able to do the 5.1 recording now?

Thanks,
Steak-too

Still only 2.0 recording. Probably for the duration. Legal, not technological issues. Use a computer for 5.1 recording.

Upconverters exist, though. Example:

What is interesting to me is that Sony now has a dvd camcorder that will record in 5.1.

So, it has 5 microphones or jacks? Doesn't seem to add up.

I don't know how they do it. Here is the link to the product on Sony's site:
