Question: How to make SD movies on computer look HD on tv?
So I have these downloaded movies from itunes in SD format, and when I watch them on the ipad, they look fine, but when I try to watch them on the tv through the computer, they look decent but I wouldn't mind them being a little more..closer to HD to make it look a bit sharper, doesn't have to be perfect HD but close enough. Anyone know how?

You can't "make SD look HD".
The SD version only has so much data. HDTVs can try to upscale the signal but this is just a fancy version of stretching the dots and guessing what would go in-between. It's adding information that wasn't originally part of the file, and is going to cause the picture to be fuzzy.
So if you want HD, you have to stick with a source that is HD.
