Tvs that support 1080p through component.

by Kamiano / November 27, 2009 2:03 PM PST

I need a tv that can support 1080p through component because my xbox doesn't have HDMI. Under $700 dollars and 40-50 inches. Any suggestions?

Your request sounded a bit odd to me.

You think there are different types of component connections? If there are, I am not aware of it. Anyone out there knows for sure?

Protected content over analog = movies ( not games generally

Shouldn't most of the LCDs in that price range accept (unprotected) 1080p content over analog RGB from an Xbox? At least I think this is the case if what I understand is correct concerning what an xbox is sending out over component vs Blu Ray over HDMI. Admittedly, I'm not much of a gamer though.

I think movies rented via the Xbox360

will still play in 1080p even though some Blu-ray players and DVD players choose to downgrade protected content when output via component. Its decided on a case by case basis by each manufacturer.

As long as your Tv has component for your Xbox output and some HDMI inputs for future devices you should be covered.

It's important not to confuse...

...future iterations with current hardware capabilities Wink It's a good article to keep on hand for future reference though.

I may be wrong

but I believe any HDTV that supports 1080p signals and has component inputs will work (which I suspect is most of them).

The problem comes with the device you are outputting from. Some devices only output 1080p signals via secure HDCP connections (HDMI) to keep people from recording the analog signal. They downgrade a 1080p signal to 720p or even 480p. The xbox360 does do this not so this so it should not be a worry.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
