I only have two HDMI ports on my TV; both are used by the PBO and the cable company box/PVR.
Before I had the PBO, purchased DVDs would be put into a standalone DVD player box, connected by HDMI to the TV, and played DVDs would be upconverted nicely. No longer possible with only a composite connection available for the DVD player.
If I purchase an external DVD player, connect via the PBO's back USB port, and play DVD's in it, will the PBO upconvert the picture to the TV since it is connected via HDMI? I can't seem to find a thread or fact that discusses this. If not, is there another solution? TIA.
For info, the USB DVD player I'm looking at is the Asus SDRW-08D2S-U... 8x slimline. I'll also buy a powered USB hub, since I currently have a WD 2.5" 1tb USB HDD connected.
