I have a client that wants to upgrade their system which consists of a component switching Yamaha receiver, a progressive scan DVD player, and an HD cable box. This system is connected to a 720p DLP projector with no HDMI inputs.
I installed this system 3 years ago. This client wants to install a blu-ray player.

One question I have is this: Can a blu-ray player output 1080i thru its component output? The Sony model I want to use says it can in its manual. The more specific question is this: Will the blu-ray player playback material from a blu-ray disc thru its component output OR will the disc itself limit the output to 480p?? I do know that the player will not up-convert through the component output.

If the player will not output Blu-ray material via component, there is an HDMI to component converter made by ExtenHD. The model number is X-CONYUV. Has anyone here heard of this unit or used it?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
