Well Damn! Finally had the time to hook up the new Blu-Ray palyer this morning. Turns out our 9 year old Mitsubishi HD TV doesn't have an HDMI port. Had to settle for the composite video connection (yellow RCA jack) and the lower resolution that goes with it. Anybody know of a converter from HDMI to RGB that might give us HD resolution? Just a thought.

You're doing yourself a HUGE disservice if you don't go out and get a TV with HDMI (or component at the very least). Running through composite defeats the entire purpose! Good luck.
Are there TV's getting cheaper with the HDMI ports these days? Everything is either flatscreen or the highest quality now (LCD, LED, Plasma) but I'm going to be in a position (Hopefully in a few years) where I will need to buy a Blu-Ray player and TV and wonder how expensive that will be.
A few months ago I was still watching DVD's on a 20" standard resolution TV. We splashed out nearly 800 on our Blu-ray/HD/3D set-up, solely for the purpose of this Blu-ray release! Don't think we'd have bothered otherwise. Star Trek has always made the technological decisions for me.
