    HDMI, no question .. if all else is equal then passing the video in digital form from DVD to display has to be better than doing D->A and A->D conversions, except perhaps with top-end equipment with very expensive DACs and even then I don't see how the HDMI path could be inferior.

    That comment about HDMI being 'best suited for hidef' is, IMHO, meaningless :), that fact that it is 'best' for hidef (even if I accepted that, which I don't), has no bearing on its' ability to carry SD material.

    It could be interesting to see the context in which you saw that comment.
