    Isn't a normal Non-HDTV 530 lines of resolution? If so, why is it measured in 480? Like, 480i?

    It's actually 525, but 480 is the number of lines used for actual picture information. 45 lines are reserved for blanking, closed captioning, etc. info.

    If you use an S-video or component cable does it use up all the 525 lines or still just 480?

    The actual # of lines used depends on the source content, not the video connection as long as the connection adheres to NTSC standards.
