With the upcoming high def DVD players supposedly in the pipeline; I understand they'll only output the high def signal via HDMI. MY HDTV is a Toshiba with only component inputs. Anybody know if the upconverting receivers that have HDMI input will pass a 1080 signal through the component outputs?

No - this would equate to stripping of the copy protection which would be illegal.

Agreeded, No you can't. I have the Denon AVR-4306 and nothing is scaled through component either, it's just converted and remains in the same resolution. You have to use HDMI to take advantage of the advanced features.

I have a 65 Mits that doesn't have HDMI or DVI, I'm hoping someone will come up with a HD modulator that can take an HDMI signal and output a digital HD signal the built in HD tuner can accept or an upgrade module for the set. My set also has firewire, but I've never owned anything else using it.
