One other option suggested by Gary Merson would be to use the Audio Authority Transcoder from the DTC100 to input component to the DVP5000 (rather than inputting via the D15 pass through) to regain color controls should the 5000 not provide for these adjustments on the HD pass through. If I recall correctly, Merson felt that the need for these adjustments on HD broadcasts was sufficient to warrant using the transcoder connection to regain color control. If the DVP5000 is like my DVP2200, I believe you don't regain the tint control, though.
The person who can answer all of your questions is Jeff Davis at Faroudja (408-735-1492). He'll tell you right away if the advice and information you're getting from us is correct or not.
One last thing: Depending on how many devices you have with component outputs, you may need an Extron component switcher to choose among them if you use the Transcoder.
