Will an external image scaler reduce or eliminate false contouring that takes place within a plasma tv?

Comcast HD via an hdmi cable, upconvert dvd via hdmi for now. Days away from getting Blu Ray. Getting the false contouring from both sources right now. Upconvert dvd looks better than the previous dvd player. Does any one know if there are any other products that can reduce false contouring? Any way to replace processor in tv?
