OK - lets say I get a DVI equipped DVD player which is not HDCP compliant, eg the 880. As I understand it the 5002 card on the 433MXE will only accept 480p, not 720 nor 1080 which the DVD player can output. To use the higher resolutions I would need , say, the Aurora A304 card which will take 720 and 1080. Question is - is it worth it? What if any benefit will there be from feeding the plasma a 720 or 1080 signal? On a related theme - is the A304 still a bit flaky on PAL? Now would be a good time to get one with the dollar heading south.
