    Using COMCASTs digital cable box has anyone had a chance to compare the Picture quality difference between a Component and DVI cable. Would a DVI cable be worth a buy? Early reply sincerely appreciated. Thanks.

    I did actually compare it via DVI and component on a Samsung HL-R4667W DLP set. I'm not sure about the cables, the DVI was Monster, so it's real quality was questionable, but FWIW component looked better to everyone who was there.

    My dad just got his HD box from Comcast and it's hooked up via component, but I will give DVI a second check with a different brand of cable just to see if I get the same results when I get a chance to get over there. It's also a Samsung, but a 32" LCD in this case.
