after reading all the post about how the s-cable produces better quality i finally bought me one of em s-cable and saw the diff for myself.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My toys:
Sony wega 32 kfs-13
Sony Dream station davc-900
Motorolla Digital cable box
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
now here's my set up:
1. dream station plugged to the tv via s-cable < DVD ONLY>
2.Cable box VIDEO in plugged to the TV while the AUDIO is plugged to the dream station VIA VIDEO 1
3. playstation plugged in to the dream station VIA VIDEO 2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
now for my question.
1.if i buy those optical jack and plug it to my cable box since it has an optical out put and my dream station has an input would it produce better quality of cable show? and would this be VIA COMPONENT PLUGS? since the s cable is for DVD only
2. and would the game from playstaion be better?
3. and is it worth buying the EXPENSSIVE THX CABLES?
and i think i posted this thread before i just dont know what happnd to it been waiting for a reply from sum1 and i didnt get any
so im really sorry if this a DOUBLE POST , thanks in advance for ur INPUTS.

Optical connections are for digital audio only. The optical connection from your cable box will allow you to receive cable broadcasts in Dolby Digital 5.1 (but only if the cable company is sending a DD 5.1 signal). An optical connection will not affect your video signal.

An optical connection from the cable box should have no effect at all on games.

People have debated this endlessly, with no clear consensus. Good-quality cables are certainly worth having, but whether they need to be THX or cost a fortune to be good quality is another question.

No problem. As far as I can tell, this is your only post so far.

If you haven't already done so, I recommend spending some time with our Beginner's Primer and FAQ. Use the link in my signature.

i see well thanks for that info
so i guess the question in hand is the component output from my dreamstation would that DVD only too? or would if produce better quality of vision if i plug the cablebox to my dream station via analog cable and optical jack for the sound and then COMPONENT OUTPUT from the dreamstaion to component input from the TV? like i said im really a NEWBIE so please bare with me

I don't know anything about the Dreamstation, but I'd be surprised if it was capable of converting your cable signal to component output.

You may want to ask this in the Video Game Hardware forum. You'll probably find more Dreamstation owners there.
