I keep hearing that HD-DVD will probably require a DVI or firewire input. But my question is this, why wouldn't a component connection work as well? You would think that manufactures would want HD-DVD to be marketable to the most people and most of the HDTV's that are sold now only have a component input. And component cables can send an HD signal so why wouldn't HD-DVD players be compatible with component connections as well as the digital ones? Current dvd players have other output such as S-video and composite.
