Ok...I'm familiar with the difference (on a 27" wega set) of composite,s-video, and component cables. There is a difference between s-video and component, though unless I freeze frame and examine, I don't know that I'd ever see the difference. The difference between composite and s-video, which is supposed to be more dramatic, seem almost identical to me in freeze frame. That said, I am utilizing, of course, my auto 16:9 mode on my non hd wega, but don't utilize, of course, a progressive scan dvd player as it is unncessary for my tv. The question is, assuming my tv was hdtv ready and could and did 'oblige' a progressive scan dvd player - what difference would my eye see, and would it be more dramatic than the difference between s-video and component? Thanks in advance.
