Is HDMI better than Component for Directv and HD?
I need help from people who own the Directv HD receiver box.
I own a true HDTV and I am in the process of purchasing a Directv H2O receiver and programming which also includes high definition channel capability.
It has composite, s-video, component, and HDMI video outputs.
I cannot decide which to purchase: component video cables or a HDMI cable for this receiver.
I have a few questions:
1. Between the HDMI and the component output, which has the best HD video quality overall with this receiver?
2. What about with standard definition broadcasts from Directv?
3. Are the differences in video quality between the HDMI and the component outputs big or small?
4. Are Directv high definition broadcasts as high a quality as the ones I can receive with my outside terrestial antenna?
All answers would be greatly appreciated.
