    I think anything over 480 is only obtainable via DVI / HDMI.

    Arcam - 576p. Though according to John Dawson the incremental quality, for the same content, of 576p/50 over 480p/60 is small.

    It is illegal for any player licenced by the DVD forum to output HD that is not digitally encrypted - so as Stellavision says, thats DVI+HDCP or HDMI. So you would need to find a player from a manufacturer that is not licensed by the DVD forum. As Adam the points out, the Momitsu is one such player. Whether any licensed ones can be hacked, like region coding, is a different matter.

    Why is it illegal? As far as I can tell not all digital video connections allow for digital rights management.

    The DVD sellers said that multi-region DVD's were illegal at the beginning and following that so was PAL progressive scan.

    Sorry, I don't buy the illegal stance.

    Against the rules, maybe, but illegal i don't it.

    Sorry for the rant, but I really dislike the DVD forum (PAL progressive years after NTSC).

    Anyway, is there any DVD players that can output 720p via VGA?

    Does anyone have any experience with this DVD player? how would it compare to my current Denon 2800mk2?

    Where can you purchase one within the UK?

    Looks like you can only purchase it in Europe. Try here for more information.

    Cheers

    The V880N is great compared to a Denon 2800 this V880 plays every disc you throw at it and plays files over network too, including vob files. Besides that its component output is good and its mpeg decoder has no macroblocking like the newer denon models xx10.

    Besides that its VGA output is very good ,and cable lengths over 10 meter are no problem (compared to the 365). DVI is HDCP free.

    If you care for audio (analogue) the denon should be your friend i guess.
