Not after the first of the year- this is called 'Analog Sunset' and any DVD/BD player made after a certain date will reduce the resolution from the analog outputs to 480p. I consider it vandalism- people didn't buy their players OR discs with the intention of putting up with the BS from Hollywood and Congress. Fortunately, companies like Vanco and originally, HD Fury, make devices that will down convert to component.
