You lucky people with your HD displays, your 1080p, your HDMI. Please spare a thought for us early adopters with our 852x480 displays. Now i've a question for the lucky ones of you out there with High Def players. I have a High def Dsat receiver that outputs (over component) a HD signal (BBC HD) at 576i into my display (plasma doesn't accept either a 1080i or 720p signal) and even at this resolution the picture is stunning (suprised me!). Can any HD player output a HD signal at 576i over component? I've searched and search but found no specs on any machine. Thanks guys and gals, Mark.

a Toshiba HD-E1 can do this, according to its manual.
