Waiting for my 1080i RPTV to die so I can get a 1080p tv. Decided to get an upconverter player.. i only have component/dvi on old tv.. Does Oppo still make the 1080i thru component? Looked at their site and couldn't find any.. What about LG? thanks in advance..

No one makes an upscaler over component anymore. You'll have to find a used one.


If you have DVI, you can get an HDMI to DVI cable and use any HDMI player you want (you'll need to run a second audio connection, but it's not that big of a deal.)

Yes Oppo makes 2

Component Output:


The DV-983H offers component output. However the component output does not feature "VRS by Anchor Bay" video processing. Video performance over component is similar to that of the DV-980H.

The DV-981HD does not have component output.

The DV-980H offers component output and is recommended you plan to use component video as the primary video connection.


Edit After checking it will upconvert over component to 1080p BUT is only available for unencrypted DVD discs such as home video and consumer-created contents. Most commercially pressed DVD discs are CSS-encrypted and will be limited to 480i/480p output over component.


Bummer



There is this
