I have a Kenwood VR-507 reciever, which has composite and S-Video switching. I have a Panasonic DVD-RV30 DVD plater, which as component, composite, and s-video outs. The TV is a Sony 36FS13, it has component, composite and s-video imputs. My PS2 is also hooked up via S-Video to the reciever. And to the TV via the reciever's S-Video out. All audio connections are done by optical cable. I am asking how to hook up my DVD player's video. I could hook up the DVD player directly to the TV via component, but then would lose the luxury of my reciever's s-video switching capability. Like if I was in the middle of a movie and wanted to check something on the tv, I would either have to turn the DVD player off or remove the component video cables. So hooking up with s-video would be more conveinant. Also, s-video cables are cheaper than component, so I could save a little money by going s-video. I read before that the difference between component and s-video is minimal and you can't tell the difference unless using a very large set. Will the difference be noticable on this Sony 36FS13? Even if the difference is minimal the cost and conveinance advantages of s-video may prove s-video to be a better choice.
