I have a 9 year old 38" tube HDTV that has been great. Great quality but only component connections. I have one of the original Blu Ray players, the Samsung BD-P1000. I just updated my firmware to the most recent update and Quantum of Solace still won't play. It gives me a message that HDMI connection is required. Does this mean this is one of the first Blu Ray DVD's that are not allowing component connection to keep us from copying the DVD via the component connections?

I am having the same problem. I contacted Samsung but after three emails, they tell me it must be my receiver. I doubt this but I had already returned the disc and bought the DVD edition and so I am unable to verify. Are you running your component cables directly to your tv or switching through a receiver?

I am running the cables through a component switcher. I returned the Blu Ray DVD as well and ordered the standard def DVD. I do know that when Blu Ray began the plan was to limit the quality coming out of the component connections for copy protection purposes. Maybe this is the first DVD with no component output. The HDMI has good copy protection. Right now I can copy movies via my component connection into Final Cut Pro in 1080i via a Kona video card. I know the movie companies don't want this happening. I have no need to do this since I just want to watch the DVD. Anyway, I hope enough DVD's get returned so the movie companies get a message that disabling component output means people in my position will have to buy new HDTV's.

I am having the same issue coming from my Samsung BD-P1000 and Component setup. This sucks.

PS3 with component cables, through a Yamaha RX-V2500, to a Mitsubishi via component -- no problem, plays beautifully. HDMI enables HDCP, which prevents you from "stealing" something you've paid for. They'll have to take my Mits and component cables from my cold, dead, clenched hands...

It sounds like the BD-P1000 is the common factor with the problem then. Thanks Alphaman it sounds like I just need to upgrade the player not the TV.
