But I did have to think about it, every single damn time I put in a DVD. The PS3 would switch to 480p instead of staying in 1080i. And of course this meant that the projector had to search for like 15 seconds to find and sync to the the video signal. Same thing on returning to the PS3 main menu. Accidentally hit play from the menu or stop from the movie? Better be prepared to wait for that re-sync.
It was so maddening that I opened up my remote control and disabled the stop button.
While our current equipment will obviously keep working (no need to point that out), the fact remains that in order to make a single component upgrade, it was necessary to trash all existing equipment and upgrade the entire system.
This is a concern that shouldn't be dismissed when discussing A/V interconnect standards. I'm not suggesting that display port is bad, or that we shouldn't switch. But rather that there are trade-offs involved. Compatibility with current equipment is a valid concern... even though that equipment still works today.
