    Re: HDMI Resolution

    One of the main differences is that we always enable HDCP. Your Sat. Receiver typically only does this on protected content. That is the best explanation I have. It is really up to the TV to display the current format. Has nothing to do with the connected source.
    Thanks for the possible explanation. Is HDCP also enabled on the component output (or only HDMI)?

    One time where I selected the HDMI input source (Vudu) and then turned on the Vudu, the banner did briefly indicate 480p before it timed out. I was not able to duplicate this by turning the Vudu off and on. Since the Vudu attempts to set the best resolution (as preferred by TV), does it go through some type of HDMI handshake each time it is turned on?

    I'm not going to lose any sleep over this cosmetic issue since I do get the correct resolution (1080/24p).

      Re: HDMI Resolution

      HDCP is part of the HDMI protocol. As component video is analog, there is no HDCP. This is the reason Vudu limits the output resolution on component to 480p (though with AppleTV now doing movie rentals in HD resolution over component, maybe things will loosen up for Vudu).

      Each time the box connects to your TV, there is handshaking that goes on. It's a new connection that gets established. When the TV changes inputs away from the Vudu, the connection goes away.
