I was reading a bit on this & the results are surprising, I thought the DVD resolution was higher than standard broadcast... at least this is how it looks.
I was reading there is no difference between Component or S, bit go to 480p where standard yellow video only goes to 480i.

The manuals are somewhat misleading then, as they both claim to either go 720p or 1080i via component out/in (& depending on how the player i/p switch is set)... no mention of HDMI, this is both in the component input instruction of the TV & CVI out of the DVD player. Now we know a standard CRT is 480 lines maximum (i or p?), & the LCD I have is 720p (or 1080i) maximum.. & we know BluRay is 1080p. I was under the impression that DVD was capable of in between 480i broadcast & BluRay (which one would believe is 720p), but this seems to be a misnomer.
I'm not all that disappointed, It's really a great picture, the player is progressive scan, which I paid a bit extra for this feature at the time.
