So, I get this call from a friend who was asking me questions about hooking up his new SONY HD tv, SONY 5.1 sound system, and HD/Digital cable. I answered all of his questions, but he threw me for a loop when he told me that the SONY salesperson said to hook up the component AND the s-video conections into the TV. He said that she said this would improve the picture???? Is this true? It can't be! I know it sounds like she was either giving him misinformation or that he maybe misinterpreted her and explained it to me wrong, but I still thought I'd double check here in case there was some validity that I may possibly be missing.
