HD-DVD HDMI/HDCP and CRT

I've just read something on the US forum that has shocked me.

I am just about to buy a CRT from Roland. I am fully aware that HDMI connection between DVD player and video processor means no analogue output. Not a problem as I plan to go the SDI route.

However, there seems to be a belief that HD-DVD, when it comes out in about 2 years or so, will require HDMI output (or whatever it evolves into) and will therefore not be displayable on analogue technologies like a CRT.

Is this so? Will there be a way to get around this? Will SDI mods still be an option?

Thanks Gordon.

I feel a little happier. The thought of being locked out of HD-DVD in 2 years or so isn't pleasant.

I am getting a little annoyed by some of the posts on that forum. Many see CRT pjs as dead technology and not worth thinking about, despite the fact that so many still have CRTs and most believe it still gives the best PQ.

Demand will dictate that a solution will be found. I'm sure of that.
