It it better to use "S-Video" or the "Y, Pb, Pr" connection to go from DVD to my Panny???
Y, Pb, Pr
a.k.a. : component
In this order:
1. Y, pb, pr
3. Video/Audio components ie Yellow, Red, White connectors
Home Theater magazine did a comparison of the 3 different types of video connections:
Component (single cable with RCA plugs): Baseline
SVideo (Cable w/funny "keyboard" connector): 20% better
Component (3 video cables w/RCA): 25% better than composite
This was for a reference, 50" RPTV. A smaller display shows LESS improvement, a larger display shows MORE.
So how big is your display?
Note: If you have a HD TV that tries to take the signal and turn it into progressive, you really, really, really want to use Component cables. Because of all the things the TV is going to do with that signal, that little 5% improvement from SVideo->Component might make a visible improvement for a HD TV.
Hope this helps.
Bob, I think you meant the first one to be composite
ouch... thanks for the catch Richard.
