I just saw a new Pioneer Elite DVD Player that offers High Definition Scaling for DVDs, T.V., Cable, etc. I just spoke with their customer service & they haven't received the new DVD players but they said they should receive them within the next 30 days. My question to them was to do the high definition upscaling do you have to have the HDMI connection or can you do it through the component cables. The tech I spoke to was very knowledgable & he told me from everything that he has read on the player so far it can do High Definition 1080I through the component cables. He gave me his name & number & told me to call him back in 30 days & he should have the owner's manual by that time to confirm that for me. Here's the link for the new product: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...442807,00.html Here's the press release on it: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...746808,00.html Does anyone know if the player will allow the High Definition Scaling to 1080I through component cables? Thanks for your replies.
