    Another TV & Cable Question

    After reading all this info about image quality and component cables and such, I had a look at the back of my tv to see what it takes. What I found is that it has inputs for normal AV, S-Video and Component cables.

    My question is, does it matter what I use. Its a normal non-flashy TV (Link to TV specs: Welcome to Celestial)

    Will I get better image quality if I use the component cable input or should I just use normal AV / S-Video input?

    You might get slightly better quality picture but I don't think it would be worth $30 when you probably wouldn't even notice the difference. I would only get the component cables if you have a HD/ED TV.

    I have to disagree with you on this one, even on a normal tube you will see a difference between the component,composite and s-video.
    Composite beeing total crap I'd suggest getting a better cable and If your set does have component inputs get the cable!
    I'm not sure if you would see a difference between S-video and component but using composite is definetly the worst of them all.

    Anyone suggest where I could go to find out more about this?

    Or any other opinions? I must admit, I am lost on this subject.

    OK - will try to keep this simple:

    Best Quality
    Component - the video signal is split into three signals, two color and one black and white, giving you the best picture. Use component video to take advantage of the superior picture found in such signal sources such as HDTV and progressive DVD.

    Component connection is three plugs - red blue and green.


    Better Quality

    S-Video - The video signal is split into two signals, giving you an even better quality picture. For example, text displayed on-screen using this connection is noticeably sharper than composite or coaxial (RF).

    S-Video connection looks like this:


    Good Quality
    Composite ("yellow plug") - The video signal is carried through a single "pin". This connection type is the one that is most commonly found on video devices


    Basic
    Coaxial (RF) - The video and audio signals are both carried in one cable. Used for antenna and cable signals.
    (The other three connection types only handle video, requiring separate connections for sound.)


    In short - if your screen has component inputs, regardless of whether it's an HDTV or not - buy the component Wii cable and use it. YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE.

    If you don't have component inputs on your screen but do have an S-Video input, buy the S-Video Wii cable and use it.

    If you can afford to buy the correct cables, always connect your screen to your input device using it's best inputs.
