Well, if I understand correctly, it WILL NOT output upconverted DVDs over component - just HDMI.

But HD-DVDs, on the other hand, can be viewed at 720p or 1080i over component *as long as* they have not been encoded with a copy protection flag that limits component to 480i/480p. However IIRC this flag will not be used for a few years yet (giving you time to upgrade to a TV with HDMI).

just to be a pain

ICT is roughly half the number of pixels. So in theory it should be better then 480 and it might be more IF a manufacturer decides to go the extra mile in none 16:9 material.

Also there is no official date for ICT (image constraint token) use, in theory a studio could decide to use it today. But I agree that I doubt it will be used short term.

worst is DOT (Digital only token) : I donít remember when it comes into effect (2010, 2012 or something like that) and then analog will be more or less useless

Even today AACS does not allow for 1080p over analog


PS everything above applies to both formats and all players

Yes, that is what Daniel was saying. I don't think the upconversion would be that great anyway.
LET'S GO BUFFALO!!!

The manual specifically details that only 480i/p is available on the component jacks when upconverting.

For some bizarre reason these HDMI upconverting players feel that their upconversion is more worthy of copy protection than the original untouched source. Strange, if you ask me...

because there is ITC and DOT waiting in the background. HD over analog is allowed because at this point too many TVs don't have HDMI and there is no good way of copying 1080i.
