Here's a question, and maybe its dumb, but im going to ask anyone. Can you hook the a2 up to a 480i tv and output over component to just 480i for both dvds and hddvds? The only reason i ask is that my father wants to get a HDTV sometime soon, but not right away. Also, his DVD player is broken. I was thinking I could buy him this, and that way he could watch his regular dvds for now ( and borrow some of my hd-dvds since most of my new releases are in hd and he cant watch them) and then when he does eventually get a HDTV, he would already have a compatible player and some movies.
