Default PS3 Blu-ray compatibility question

This might be a dumb question but I am a real novice with technology. I want to know if you can still watch copy-protected blu-ray dvds even if you don't have an HDMI connection with your PS3? I am only using the component cable with blue, green, and orange connectors.

Also will it be in 1080i or 1080p?

I want to be sure before I buy Planet Earth $60 and all. Any help is welcome.

Planet Earth will play just fine on either cable. As I understand it, newer movies that utilize BD+, no discs have it yet, would need HDMI to decode properly.

They should play just fine even with BD+, you just won't have the features. That doesn't bother me a bit.

The output would be 1080i (I believe) and not p......but I could be set is only capable of 1080i and it's gorgeous.
