First I want to say that I have lurked on this website for years and am truly appreciative of all of the folks that help each other out with various questions. This site actually helped me make a decision in regards to my new receiver and speaker purchase three years ago. I ended up with a Yamaha Rx-V795a and Klipsch speakers. I just purchased a Sony 30" KV30HS420 TV. I went this route because of price, $70 over cost, and I have a Motorola DCT6412 III cable box from RCN which is a DVR and HD tuner. I only sit about 5-7 feet away from the TV so that's why I didn't get a monster TV. Now down to my question. I want to purchase a new DVD player that is Progressive scan and with the ability to upconvert to 720/1080. In reading through a lot of these posts I am confused as to whether or not you can do this via component or if it has to be HDMI? I planned on using component for both the Cable box and the new DVD player but in looking at some of these posts I am under the impression that you won't get the 720/1080 signal unless you use the HDMI cable. I was looking into buying the Sony DVPNS70H DVD player @ $143ish from CC. The TV I bought only has one HDMI input so either the Cable Box, which I watch more of, or the DVD will have to be component. Will I still get the proper signal to the TV if I use component in either case? Do I need to use HDMI in order to get the upconvert signal from the DVD player? Thanks in advance. T.
