I am in the process of setting up my HT using Component over Cat-5e wallplates to establish a connection between my TV and Sunfire TGR-401 Receiver, which is about 30ft away. So far i have NOT been able to get 1080p from my PS3 or Panasonic Blu-Ray player which are both connected to the receiver. I can only go up to 1080i. From all the research I've done so far, it seems the only way to get true 1080p from either of these sources is by using an HDMI cable.
One question I have is is it possible for my receiver to connect to the PS3 via HDMI and then output via component to the wallplate and get 1080p?
Another question, does the 6020FD have the ability to upconvert from 1080i to 1080p?
And another question, can anyone think of a way for me to get 1080p with my current setup?
And yet another question, am I better off using 720p rather than 1080i?
I might be overreacting but I would really like to see 1080p on my new 6020FD. Also planning on be purchasing an AppleTV and XBOX360 Elite and hoping these will work in 1080p. Fios TV is already out of the question because it only supports up to 1080i.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
