I'm a newbie and don't exactly have a critical eye. But I bought and connected the Ultralink Stereophile S-video cable from my DVD player to my TV replacing my composite connection from DVD to receiver to TV and it seems that the whole picture is brighter and clearer. Grainer too perhaps. But it does seem to me that everything is more clear. I can see the chapter names more clearly in the chapter search screen. Is it just me or did it really make a big difference. The combination of switching from composite to S-Video and connecting from DVD straight to TV?
