    I have all of the systems.... the current ones anyways. and i just purchased a new tv (yes i took the peoples advices on my previous board) i went with a panasonic 27'' tv(components, the works)And well, i found a problem with it being blury while i am playing basicly all of my video games. Not very blury, but just blury enough to muffle the text. I tried to adjust the color and everything but it has vbery nice graphics with just regular cable. Is there something wrong with my TV or should i just get the component and svideo hook up and hook it in there?

    Try using the component cables, I find a huge difference on my PS@ between component and composite.

    If you wanna save some money, get s-video cables instead. There is little difference between s-video and component cables on a non HDTVs. I have a toshiba 24" flatscreen tv and don't notice much difference between my $10 madcatz s-video cable and my $40 pro series component cable for my ps2. While the component cable will give you a cleaner signal, it doesn't always translate into better image quality. The regular composite video cable is the reason your picture is slightly blurry. Also, some component cable don't have analog out, so you'll be forced to use optical outputs. That maybe a problem if you don't have enough digital input on your receiver.

    One more thing, don't but the sony brand component cable if you decide to go that route. It's just a cheapo third party made cable that normally sells for less then $10 on the net.
