If you install an HD-DVD drive into your PC and have an HDCP enabled video card the highest HDCP enabled resolution you will be able to see with the 2407 is 1280X720p. HDCP enabled resolutions at 1080i and 1080p are not supported by this LCD display. If HDCP is not enabled you will be able to display 420p, 720p and 1080p (interlaced resolutions are not supported via DVI).
So these resolution limitations of the Dell 2407 happen only if we use a HDCP enabled 1080p signal from a HDCP enabled video card or player.
But... what happens if:
(1) we use a non-HDCP enabled 1080p signal from a HDCP enabled video card or player ?? Will the Dell 2407 display the full 1080p image? No?
(2) we use a non-HDCP enabled 1080p signal from a non-HDCP enabled video card or player ?? Will the Dell 2407 display the full 1080p image? Most probably yes.
