I see, so with component connections (Im not sure if the charter moxi even has an hdmi anyhow, that i'll check in a while) i would not be able to watch the new hd dvds. What else do you mean by copy protected hd sources?
i might add that at this pont i dont have a sound system yet, i would just be using either the attachments for two speakers that are built into the tv or my prologic type av reciever. Also i do not have a newer proggressive/upscaling dvd player.
It sounds like from what you guys say and from other posts ive read, that hdmi is better, but i may not have anything to plug that connection into at this point, maybe i have to wait a while for that upgrade.
