Re-encode to a higher resolution.

Easy to do, But it won't improve the quality.

You can polish a turd but...
Note that upscaling is used usually on CLEAN high bitrate inputs ie 8000kbit mpeg 2 stream on yourDVD player. Your probably giving it a rubbish compressed video input ~500kbit so it wont look any better.

Depends on the quality of the original footage. MOV Format can be as good or bad as the setting used. Highest Quality MOV Format is as good as good raw AVI format but can also be scaled down.

Try to find out the resolution of the original as you will not get better than that if you can get that instead of the DVD.
