Hi,

I have the Pioneer Pro-Elite 710 RPTV and the Sony HD100 Satellite receiver. Both are capable of using a VGA hook up. How much better will VGA be compared to componet?

Thanks for any input!

I am estimating that the quality will be the same.
If the same set of jacks delivers or accepts both VGA (RGB) and Y-Pb-Pr component video, the quality (bandwidth) of the circuits is going to be the same.
The lesser horizontal resolution of component video (on the Pb and Pr lines) is a limitation of the source material, not necessarily that of the circuitry in the TV.

It makes quite a difference with my projector. The VGA allows for more tweaking of the picture....It also allows me to use a VGA switcher to hook the satellite and HTPC to the projecter and only use a single cable......no switching of inputs that way. HTPC can perform perfect pixel mapping 856X480 so the projector doesn't have to scale.
