So I need to get an HDMI cable for it for the best picture?? It will not upconvert on a componet hookup? I though you could do 720P over componet. Do I have this wrong?
Yes you will need the HDMI cable to upconvert the dvd video.
HD is capable of going across component normally but if you want to upconvert a regular dvd signal they make you use the HDMI cable. This is true of virtually every upconverting dvd player.

By the way here is a thread at AVS forum discussing the Sony DVP-NS75H and most give it high marks as do I.
I use to have a Denon 1600 dvd player with the Faroudja chip in it (until it died) and I loved the picture. I had never seen another player with such a great picture. This Sony player is on par with that Denon in the picture quality department and it is faster on the layer switch also. I love it.
