Has anyone experimented in taking apart the CM-7000 to see if it is possible to get a HD output (1080i or 720p) by hacking and/or modifying the board?

I am very happy with my CM-7000 and watch it on an older CRT HDTV, but was wondering if it can be done.

I suspect this may be possible for two reasons:
1) Picture quality is excellent (DVD quality) with an S-video cable, so I was wondering if the CM had high definition capability pre-designed in the circuitry and maybe not utilizing the HD output, to be able to sell it as a CECB box.
2) The manual says it accepts 1080i, 720p and 480i signals and outputs 480i

So has anyone tinkered with the CM7000 yet?

This question really belongs in the CM 7000 thread.

Some have opened the box to see if mods are possible - try reading through the thread, post #79 and a few of the follow-ups may interest you.
