A friend of mine has the Sony 34" widescreen HTDV (the tube kind). I like it so much I'm thinking about getting the same one since I really just don't have the room for a bigger RPTV or a fat enough wallet for a big plasma. Anyhow, it has component ports in the back but also a DVI port like newer PC monitors have. I noticed my new DVD player also has component and DVI connections. Generally, what would give me a better picture quality, the DVI port or the component port? His TV didn't come with a DVI cable, and neither did my DVD player. I also haven't seen them for sale at Best Buy (well not where the other video cables are but maybe they have em with PC stuff), but I had to order a replacement one for my PC from a company that makes them once... would I want to just order a new one for the TV or is it a different type of cable/connection that just looks the same? Or is the TV's DVI port just for if you wanted to use your HDTV as a computer monitor? Basically what's gonna be my best way to hook up my DVD player? I also plan on getting DirecTV with HDTV and all the works, but for now I'm still on regular "digital" cable. So I figured I'd be better off connecting the DVD player for the best possible video it can do.
