Don’t Worry, Samsung is not Gimping Component Inputs on 2011 Displays
On Friday, we heard rumblings from CE Pro and supposedly confirmation from a Samsung rep that component input would be limited to 480p on the 2011 display lineup. It seems we have confirmation that this is not true both through a CE Pro reader, Bill Paul of Neothings, who confirmed via tests at a Best Buy Magnolia store and an official Samsung response to EngadgetHD.
Samsung has made no change to its support for HD input via component connection. Our 2011 televisions continue to support up to 1080p signals through component inputs.
