    should i be able to select YUVoutput when connected to my hs10 via Hdmi-dvi cable.
    currently my 79 only lets me select rgb.
    does it make a difference?

    I had this issue using my dv-79 through my media box on my 504hde and had to get the media box upgraded to allow yuv over hdmi. Presume that you may have a similar issue with your set-up. Sorry couldn't be any more help.

    Dont think you can run YUV if you are going from HDMI -> DVI as the problem with the media box on the pioneers was cuasing the DV79 to run in DVI mode.

    I could be wrong here though.

    SpikeyBoy is correct.
    The DVI specification allows only RGB mode. The HDMI spec allows YUV as well, provided both ends support it.
    When you connect an HDMI source to a DVI display, the source will revert to DVI mode, hence only RGB video.
    Hope this helps
