    I was trying to understand just what component video connections were since I don't have an HDTV yet and came across this article.

    Gives a simple explanation of the 3 most common types of video connections. Thought it might help someone else as well.

    Yes, though definitely DVI is something to look into more and more nowadays if you have a digital display device.

    And I also should mention RGBhv, since with more HTPC use, that too is important to know about as well. Especially since I use RGB, since that's all my projector takes. (well, it takes composite/s-video, but you'd never want to feed it that!)
