Default Re: Denon AVR3808CI upscaling confusion

Watching my reference DVD (The Girl Next Door - gotta love Elisha Cuthbert!) from my Samsung PD-P1500 Blu-Ray player, the Info button on my Mitsubishi WD-73833 shows 1080p, as does the Sammy display, but from my (cheapie) Panasonic DVD-S53 it shows 480p. I have the Denon 3808Ci set to Auto, in the HDMI Resolution menu, and have even changed it to 1080p, without any change in the Info display. I stepped through all the settings, and the sources are set to convert. I have the latest firmware installed.

Mind you, the picture looks just fine. Am I missing something here?
How is it connected?
The only thing not connected by HDMI in my system is a VCR & it's hooked up with a S/Video cable & it does not upconvert either, it may be a DRM thing.
