I'm sure it could, but I can guarantee with 99.999% assurity that
whatever graphics microcontroller is in your H100 series player is going
to be different than whatever will 'drive' your new bigger screen -
which means it's more than simply plugging wires - you'd have to get
some middleware/firmware written for the new graphics controller to
interpret the incoming graphics signal and translate it into signals
that the new screen needs.

As someone else mentioned, it's likely going to cost more than you're
willing to pay for a small 'return' on the investment.

It's totally doable, I'm sure, but I highly doubt it's a 'weekend' project.
