Down-Res to Plug BD's Analog Hole

June 19, 2009 — Are you using a Blu-ray player to feed high-def images to a first-generation HDTV via component video? Guard that player well. In a few years, new players will be required to down-res high-def images fed via component video, effectively turning older high-definition TVs into standard-definition TVs.



Yup. Thank all those pirates out there doing real-time recordings of HD content via component connects. :rolleyes:
