Just for $hits and Giggles I decided to switch over from SVIDEO to Component Cables today and I saw no diffrence in picture quality. I was running a Monster SVID from my Panasonic CV51 into my Onkyo 787 and then from the 787 to the RCA 61" RPTV via a Radio Shack Gold SVID. I took 3 seperate runs of RCA Home Theater Cable (Made for RCA by Monster) and went directly from the DVD to the TV's Component inputs and I was ready to be astounded.... It never happened... I must not be a "Videophile"
