Component video is a better picture than S-video...go there.
S-VHS is a lesser connection than component.
The low to high...
Lowest Coax into antenna. (old VCRs..)
next worst: composite (everyyhing in one coax)
next least worse: S-VHS (great with S-VHS and Laserdisc players)
better: Component: three separate coax cables (DVD standard)
second best DVI (computer standard)
Best: HDMI: (Hi def standard)
What would I do in that situation is plug my DVD Player into my TV using the Component Video inputs (best picture...... BY A WIDE MARGIN...... until HDMI emerged) and use the coaxial outputs to output the audio from the DVD Player itself to the sound system.
Between S-Video and Component Video, Component Video wins out everytime.......
Thanks for the input.
I think there may be another issue though. I have to check this evening. The references I have seen indicate that component video is three cables. I seem to recall from looking at the back of the TV and the back of the DVD player that I have five cables.
Could this be correct or do I have something else going on?
I looked at both the tv and dvd player.
On the tv they are labeled Y, Pb and Pr.
On the dvd they are labeled Y, Cb/Pb and Cr/Pr.
Does it make a difference ragearding how the dvd are labeled with ragards to the Cb/Pb and Cr/Pr? Do I have to select something so that they feed the Pb and Pr to match the tv?
