Default ps3 upconversion without hdmi

Is it possible to upconvert a dvd with the ps3 without hdmi. My tv is 1080i but does not have a hdmi port, i have to use composite cables.

You cannot view upconverted content without a connector that is HDCP compliant. This means HDMI or most DVI inputs. There is a way around it by buying a device that will strip the protection but it is expensive, over 200 bucks I think.

I think you mean that you use component cables. Composite is the yellow one.

Yes i did mean component cables. Doesn't the xbox allow this though through compnent. My tv also does not have dvi, makes me mad. It is older mitsubishi. Can backup dvd's work with no copy protection or is it just a lost cause.

The 360 does allow upscaling via VGA due to it not being subject to the rule but no not component. There was a few older DVD players out there that did it against the rule but they are hard to come by these days.

Most DVD copying software removes the restrictions so yes this is a good way around it for your favorite disks but not a solution to copy all of your disks. Also some newer DVD's have newer ways to keep them from being copied. (Ultraviolet and Casino Royal for instance)
