    First off IEEE is "Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers".

    What you have there I believe is IEEE "1394" (FireWire, iLink,etc.) On a TV is mostly used for HDTV setop tuner boxs/D-VHS. To my knowledge video via FireWire cannot currenty be used on DVD players. The FireWire connector on you DVD player is prob used for multichannel DVD-A and or SACD audio.

    "ieee 1394" is use for digital communication between a DV camcorder or digital camera and your HDTV or computer. As for the best connection for a DVD, I'm not sure, and have never have heard of a DVD with "ieee 1394" for this purpose. I can imagine it being use for recording on to a hard drive like a TIVO.
