I just bought a new Sharp 36" flat tube TV. (I know, Sharp isn't the best, but it was a good price). I connected my DirectTV and DVD player to my receiver via S-Video, then connected the monitor out from the receiver to my TV via S-Video. There are no composite cables attached anywhere. None of the setup menus on any of my devices allow for setting the input to S-Video. I do get signal on the TV- so I guess it's automatically detecting the S-Video connection. However, I don't feel that the picture quality is any better with S-Video. In fact, broadcast TV looks fairly poor at times (Satellite artifacts?). BTW, I'm using all new S-Video cables (but they aren't the expensive Monster brand). Is it possible that I haven't connected something properly? Is it possible that an $800 TV's S-Video quality isn't as good as a $1000+ brand? I'm ready to take this beast back, but would love any advice I can get to avoid shlepping it around town and bringing another one home.
