[QUOTE=CDan;2408425]Most any DVD or BD player will upscale DVDs over component IF they are not CSS encrypted. Most BD players will output 1080i over component on BD discs. You would need to look at a specific player to confirm the BD output.
There are firmware hacks for some older model DVD players that remove the CSS encryption limitation, but none for current players that I know of.[/QUOTE]
That’s correct most but not all will up-convert over component.
Don’t you love the wonderful world of copy protection. Big brother wants to control what you watch,when you watch and how watch your media.
