If this is true, then it is very strange indeed. BD players output 720p/1080i via component, but an upconverting DVD player won't! This just doesn't make any sense!
(I realize that once the ICT is implemented (>2012) BD component outputs will no longer work, presumably by then everyone should have a HDCP compliant display.)
