    I know a topic like this has probably been discussed many times, but this is a little different twist. I am wanting to use this pj for HD, DVD, VCR, and XBox. I'll hook up the HD via the M1-DA, then the VCR via Composite.
    My question is should I hook up DVD and XBox to Component via a component switcher, orshould I just hook up DVD to component then XBox to SVideo?
    I would obviously like to get the best picture from all sources. Also with Halo 2 coming out in Nov. I'm told that will be 1080i. I don't think SVideo will do 1080i?
    Please let me know what you think the best way to hook up all would be.
    Thank you

    yes, on the switcher, because as you said, svideo will not pass eve 480p let alone HD resolutions.

    I'd say fore go the composite and get an SVHS VCR even, and connect that via svideo.

    But definelty Component Video on DVD and XBOX.
