Have not personally done it with your Pioneer, but with my 65" Mits RPTV there is no discernable difference between HDMI and Component inputs. The real question for you, I think, is what rates will your Pioneer support over Component? I think HD, and Blu-Ray, players all want to output at 1080i (maybe 1080p someday) and fall back to 480p if your equipment can't support 1080.

Hi George
And tanks for the input!
Good ? 1080i, 720p, 420p I think are good to go with PureCinema set to on.
If I read the book right.
Tanks for the info!

I have my XBOX 360 HDDVD (1080i) add on hooked up through the component cables that came with the xbox and I have a PS3 blu ray(1080p) hooked up via HDMI. So far I can see no difference, if anything I would say that the few HDDVDs I own look better than the few BDs I have.

I dont think its necessary to buy a new monitor if you dont want to. HD movies will look great at 1080i through your Pioneer I'm sure.

Copy protected Blue Ray or HDDVD disks won't play hi-def excepth through HDMI with HDCP compliance.

You will have to hold off on hi-def DVD until you upgrade to a new TV or unless the U.S.A. gets rid of this HDCP crap.
