Well - on the disks which DO wok over component, I *do* get full 1080i.
On the disks that don't -- well I get nothing - just the errors referred to before.
Fortunately, for $100 one can buy pretty good transcoders (Key Digital) so I send a VGA signal to the transcoder and pick up component from there.
Not ideal, as one doesn;t get to play with the overscan/underscan settings in this mode and I can't quite find the exact 1080i frequency settings - so some TV's in the house work, and some don't (I have the component signal entering and extron switcher which then pumps the signal via a matrix to any one of my HDTV's around the house via Cat5).
