    I have an old Premiere that I can use in my guest room with an old 1080i monitor that only has component in, not HDMI.

    If the no-copy flag is set by the cable company for the pay channels, does it disable the component out? Or is that always active on these devices?

    The no-copy or copy-protection means it cannot be copied to another device. Not preventing from viewing it.

    Chances are that the monitor you mention does not have a component input.
    In that case you will need a converter that transcodes the component signal (YPbPr) to VGA or DVI.
    You will also have to use the stereo output L/R as well.

    His monitor/tv has component in. First post. Lot of folks use the term "monitor" when it is actually a tv.

    The difference between monitor and TV, is monitor does not have a TV tuner.

    Yeah you're right.
    But, video input configurations are easily confused, or just misstated; I figured I'd throw it out anyway.
