Are there any upconvertes that up over component without issues? I know the DVB318 will if you have one made before a certain date. But are there any that do a nice job regardless of when it was made??

If not is there a dvd/vcr combo with a tv tuner that will play all signals through component?



Any advice for either unit would be appreciated.

Another question,
Will dvd recorders with tv tuners play the television signal over component or s video?

I sense sarcasm????


Up converting in itself is highly debatable as it is.
Is it really that much better, or is it the chipset used, that if it wasnt a up convertor makes it better????

That needs to be answered first.


Older Samsungs, HD-841, 850 and I believe the 860, with a simple hack can up convert on component. Others?????????

I have a Oppo 971H which was purchased based upon its testing that gave it #1 for picture quality and not really for its up conversion properties along with the fact it used DVI out.
I've switched between a normal progressive output of 480P to 720P and 1080I, which my TV will take. Any differences?? Subtle, very subtle at best and could be because my brain maybe wants to see it!!!!

From player to player, yes, this oppo made a very noticeable difference over other up converters I had, up conversion wise, I dont think so!!
