My 2 questions: -how much better is S-video vs. composite on a 27" analog t.v.? -is a 27" (4:3) HDTV worth the cost? To set up my entry level HT, I'm trying to decide between a a Toshiba 27" analog flat screen and a Samsung 27" HDTV monitor (TXM2797HF). I'm not quite ready to spend $1,000 for the least expensive 16:9 HDTV monitor (Samsung 30"), plus it's a relatively small room. The Toshiba analog is supposed to have an excellent S-video picture (according to Consumer Reports) and my current cable box provides digital cable and has an S-video output. If I go with the Toshiba I want to know how much of a difference I'll see upgrading from my current composite setup to the S-video setup. If I go with Samsung 27" HDTV, my cable company can switch me to a special HDTV box with component outputs that will deliver a 1080i HDTV signal. The down side is there are currently only 6 channels available in HDTV. Since the Samsung is a 4:3 t.v. it's my understanding those few HDTV channels (and any widescreen DVD) will be letterboxed on the set (the set has vertical compression). So I'm not sure if upgrading to 27" HDTV is worth it since I won't be seeing a full blown HDTV picture, especially if simply upgrading to a 27" S-video t.v. will give me a noticeably better picture than I currently get with my analog 25" t.v. and composite signal. Please reply with comments and recommendations. thanks.
