High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. basically copy protection for the digital signal. A DVI-HDMI adapter is trivial, essentially the same video signal except that HDMI supports audio. But if your TV doesn't support HDCP, you will only get the 480p I believe.

what model tv do you have?

Ok, so tell me what you guys think about this.

DVD player out HDMI to switch
Sat box out HDMI to switch
Media PC out DVI/HDMI cable to switch

From the switch to the TV VIA a HDMI/DVI cable.

Will that give me the best possible pic with what I have?

What is HDCP?
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - IE: the content manufacturers restricting how you utilize the content you "licensed" from them. Most players will restrict up-scaling/up-conversion if you don't have an HDCP compatible connection to the output device, such as an HDMI connection.

Cheers!

"**15. What types of AVI files are supported?

The Xbox 360 supports files encoded using MPEG-4 Part 2, Simple and Advanced Simple Profile. These files are often referred to as Xvid or DivX video files. Many common PC DVD authoring tools, cameras, and camcorders are capable of encoding files using MPEG-4. Note that some files authored for DivX devices may also contain additional functionality(menus, subtitles, multiple audio tracks, etc). The Xbox 360 will attempt to play these files, but does not support any of the additional functionality and in some cases will be unable to play the file."

Just google it, its all over the place

from the internal grapevine. can't say more, but if nothing changes the X360 one will be Xbox Live integrated. And if there is PS3 one it most likely will be on an external disk which you boot in your PS3 like a video game.
