Re: [IA] Pace HD DVR

Eventually we will be forced into needing HDMI connections to be used because TV manufacturers are removing extra composite and component jacks from sets, especially on lower-end models. When I was recently pricing HD TVs in the 37 to 42 inch range, most of what I was finding now seem to come with just a single set of jacks for use as either composite or component (as opposed to two complete sets of each type as my four year old 32 inch Visio has).

Oh I know that but hopefully these DCTs won't be in the field when that time comes.

Content producers hate component/composite connections because they do not support copy protection. HDMI has copy protection, hence the people making the movies want to force you to use HDMI.
