Hi all I have enjoyed my Pioneer pdp 5030 hd!!

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.

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.
