Just curious as to whether its possible or even desirable to use bog standard DV AVI footage (which is of good quality), convert that to 1080p, burn and view via Blu Ray on a widescreen Plasma TV? If so, which codec, tool would people use for conversion?

Yes, it's possible but not worth it. Get a HD camcorder instead.
It's possible but the result will be pretty much the same as displaying the original DV AVI footage directly on the HDTV.

PS: I'm not sure of the maximum SD MPeg2 bit rate for Blu-Ray but I'd bet it is over ~9Mb/s maximum for DVD. You could try 20Mb/s for very high quality.Recommends: Kiva.org - Loans that change lives.
