I've only used the player for about an hour or so (purchased earlier this month). It has the older firmware, and I've confirmed that it does 1080i/720p over component. My projector acts a bit funky with anything besides my trusty Panasonic, so I figure I'll cut my losses. Everything is as new, and all packaging, manuals, and cables will be included. This is the last of a dying breed, as Zenith has now removed the upconversion over component video from the 318. My asking price is $180.
