Not all televisions have built in scaling.
One's that don't that have resolutions stated represent the
resolutions the television set is CAPABLE of displaying.
All Sony XBR HDTV's for example have upscaling in them. My friend's
61" Teshiba DLP does not. You can change the output of the PS3 from
1080i to 480p and see the difference in the menu on the screen.
Again, televisions do not automatically upconvert inputs to whatever
they are capable of displaying, they list the resolutions to show you
what signals they can accept.
Your friends Toshiba DLP does indeed upconvert everything it gets. The only sets that do convert scan rates to their native resolution are multiscan CRT based sets that can do more than one scan rate. Fixed pixel displays have a native resolution and everything that they display has to be scaled to that resolution. Period. You might check your fact before stating them like you know what you are talking about.
Of course upscaling a 480p signal will not look as good as native source 1080i signal! If it looked the same, then why bother having native 1080i sources?
