Thanks all for the responses! As is usual... If you ask a question on DBSTalk not only will you get an answer you will probably get a few answers. And if you pay attention you just might learn something along the way.

I will replace the component with HDMI as long as I don't see any abnormal (pink tinting) effects. I realize that I will probably not be able to perceive any picture improvement but it will "feel" better which is just as important sometimes.

One thing I have learned from a similar thread is that I will NOT go out and purchase a Monster HDMI cable. :lol:

In my opionion, it is well worth the $6 cost for an HDMI cable if it will make you "feel" better about your installation. :)

...I tested component vs. HDMI on my 32" TV and while picture quality was about the same from 5' away, there was a real difference in overscan. This is probably due to the TV but something to be aware of.

Good point. I have seen this sort of thing. I noticed the vertical centering was slightly higher on one type of cable compared to another type on a particular TV.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

1080p can absolutely be transferred over component. For example, the XBox 360 does...now, you have to have a TV that will accept 1080p over component. My KURU does not, but there are Samsungs that do.

Yes, I think it is not so much a HDMI thing or a true inability of the component protocol as it is the coincidence of DRM being enacted for certain protocols on certain display formats about the same time 1080p became available.
