    Are they any good? I just got a dish HDtv system and have the DVI connections on my tv and receiver. Is the DVI connect much better than component?

    If you are able to use DVI, you should do so...if not then Components are a good choice.

    I think it depends on the type of display you are using. CRT based RPTV's supposedly do not benefit from DVI but plasma and DLP do.

    I have a similar situation. I just got HD digital cable receiver. It has a DVI output and my TV has DVI input. My tv is a HD ready Sony widescreen direct view cathode ray set. My cable company gave me component cables and it looks great but just wondering since I have the capability for DVI if I should do that instead.
