I think you're taking it a bit literally. With only 480i, it doesn't look much better than the PS2 as far as clarity.

On a 720p set there will be no difference between component and HDMI, aside from one single wire vs. one larger wire with multiple ends. On a 1080p set, you need HDMI for bluray movies to play back at 1080p due to HDCP.

You can do 1080p over component (outside of bluray and other protected media), but it's up to the TV; not all support that resolution through that connection.

The difference between 1080p and 720p can be difficult to tell. It depends on the size of the screen, how close you sit to it and what you're viewing.

All my blurays play at 1080p over component. It just won't upconvert DVD's over component, that's all.

Depends on the TV, component is an analog signal so running to an LCD TV you'd have 2 signal conversions of the image, D/A coming off your source and then A/D at the TV.

Where as HDMI is digital (and electrically the same as DVI only using a different connector and adding an audio stream to the connection) and as such you'd avoid all signal conversions from source to T.V. thus providing the highest quality image on your set.

Now like I said this would only go for Digital displays, i.e. DLP, LCD, Plasma, Laser, LCOS, and OLE. Anaglog displays using CRT technology would see no difference between Component/HDMI.

Are you sure it's not 1080i? If not, that's news to me. Good to know


In any event, to get the best sound, you need HDMI.

Positive it's not 1080i, my screen doesn't support interlaced resolutions .

Also not true, most blu-ray players have built in decoding for LPCM and Dolby Digital Plus, and will pass the decoded analog 6 channel sound through a 5.1 analog out to a receiver that has analog 6 channel input.

All the Sony's have this feature and many other BD players do as well. That way those of us with older DD/DTS receivers don't have to go drop another bankroll on a new receiver just to upgrade to DD Plus/Uncompressed LPCM. The only format you won't get without HDMI is DTS HD.
