Ok, my brother bought a big old WS 65511 Mitsubishi. Its only 1080i input is component. (no HDMI back when they made these). 1) So can a person buy a DVD player that has Component 1080i? 2) Do the 2008 DVD's, and in general, remain compatible? I did some reading but all the posts were like 2002 or 2003....seemed easier to post, a 2008 question. Edit: After reading ...what a mess! Everyone getting stiffed with the HDMI coming out, Component DTV owners left to hang. Wrote down several DVD players, seems the Zenith DV318 is a main player to search for. This will be fun finding a old DVD player. Anyone have one for sale let me know!
