1) Possible but a low chance.
2) 25watts may not be hot enough but the quality of the soldering iron is influential as a poor quality tip won't transmit heat very well even at 40watts. It's better...

HDMI is DVI with audio and HDCP. Your DVI should have HDCP so if you have the audio sorted it's no different from using a third party converter.

The big question is are the new "4k Blu-ray" discs backwards compatible with old 1080p players? If not, the new format isn't really Blu-ray at all.

They would have the big display models not because they sell so many of them but because they drive people to buy a high margin 55" when they may otherwise have bought a 50".

The smaller the screen size the less noticeable the difference would be. I'd notice a difference but I think most people wouldn't.

Turn overscan off if the source is 1080i.
