    I am purchasing a Hitachi 61SWX10B, which does not have DVI. Will I be ok for HD broadcasts if I have an HD receiver with S-Video and optical audio out?

    Thanks,
    Quinn

    HDTV is transmitted through component inputs or through DVI. If the TV is HDTV ready, it will have at least one set of component inputs.

    You will need to utilize the component video output (3 RCA jacks, usually colored coded Red, Blue, and Green) from the HD receiver to get 1080i playback on your HDTV set.
