1) Since I'm about to spend a few thousand dollars on a RPTV it doesn't make sense to NOT buy the best component video cable available--if there is such a thing. I've searched the threads and discovered many good options. I'm still left with the overriding question: is there such a thing as a high end component cable--price ISN'T a factor--only what will give someone the top of the line picture quality--or is it all subjective? I don't care if that cable costs $25 or $200. I'll be using my RPTV for dvds (XP30 player) and Comcast digital cable/Comcast HDTV. 2) Those with Comcast digital cable/HDTV: Does one connect from the set-top box directly to TV or to the receiver (I will be going from dvd player directly to TV with a component cable)? Will it take a component cable or a HDTV cable?
