    I prefer DVI way clearer picture if you have DVI on your conputers video card & tv. HDMI is probally the same.

    Greetings

    S-video to the TV gives a really fuzzy computer image. Forget about trying to read the desktop icons.

    Component and DVI/hdmi are the way to go.

    With component you need a VGA to component transcoding device to make the two compatible. A break out cable is not enough.

    Regards
