DVD upconvert always work?

I have a 2 year old Zenith HDTV with no HDMI input. I got a Samsung upconvert DVD player and hooked it up to my TV through the component inputs. The picture looks greatly improved.
I've read in another forum that comercially made movie DVD's have anti-copywrite info that keeps them from upconvering when the signal goes through a component hookup but not a HDMI hookup. Is this true? If the movie DVDs I've looked at aren't upconverting, why do they look so much better than before? Amazingly so. The upconvert DVD player is brand new.
Thanks for any info.

You might be getting 480i.

Upconverting players are not permitted to upconvert to component output, that is a fact.

That is not a fact classic. There are DVD players that can upconvert over component or HDMI cables but they are expensive.

Component cables can carry a 1080p signal, just that most typical DVD players will not allow it or the DVD will not allow it.

Here are some of many that can do it:


Momitsu V880-DX, V880N

NeuNeo HVD108 and HVD208
