My Philips widescreen HDTV locks into full mode with progressive-scan signals, and my Pioneer DVD player doesn't do aspect-ratio control. Thus, I can't view 4:3 or letterboxed-only images in their proper aspect ratio. (Changing equipment is not an option at the moment.) I tried doing an S-video connection to send interlaced signals into another one of the TV's video sources. This fixed the aspect ratio problem, but I'm not happy with the picture quality. I'd like to split the component-video output into two so I can use both of the TV's inputs -- one for progressive, the other for interlaced. a) Will this visibly improve the PQ of the interlaced signal? If so... b) I'm under the impression that what I need is a distribution amplifier. Is that correct? What is a good brand/model of distribution amp to get? All I need is one input and two outputs for component video. Price isn't that much of a consideration as long as there is no signal degradation, but I don't want to spend more than I have to either. Thanks.
