Default Hd-dvd Without Hdmi?

The March issue of 'Official X-Box Magazine' states that the 360's impending HD-DVD player will operate by being plugged into one of the 360's USB ports. In this and other articles I haven't yet found any mention that HDMI connections would be in any way involved. If HDMI is bypassed, how will there be piracy protection for Hi-Def movies?

By the way, in that same article Peter Moore of Xbox mentioned that Xbox would also be capable of supporting Blu-Ray at some time in the future. Make of that whatever you will.

The signal will just be degraded over component, if Microsoft or Toshiba decides to go that route. I remember reading somewhere that the 360 would eventually support HDMI, but that was before the 360 launch... can anyone confirm this?

and Microsoft would be covering all their bases by supporting Blu-Ray in addition to HD-DVD, but makes them look really weak for supporting their rival's format. Moore shouldn't have mentioned Blu-Ray and Xbox in the same sentence. Bad move, Microsoft.

Wait until you see what HD audio will offer! This will create a lot of trouble amoung all of those who expected more. It's 2.0!!

Default HDMI is just the form factor of the connection.

You can have high def with DVI-D and some audio cables as long as the hardware on both ends supports HDCP which is the copy protection protocol.
