Hope one of you gurus can help me with this one... My Sony DAVS-880 surround sound / DVD system has component video output which I use to connect to my current TV. I am on the verge of buying either a Panny or Pio plasma in the coming weeks. Everyone is talking about running HDMI from the DVD player to get breathtaking results. My question is, what is the difference in picture quality between component and HDMI? Is it much better, or only marginal? Basically, I don't want to have to upgrade my DVD player to take advantage of my new plasma unless I really have to, as I have already upped my budget from £2k to £3k for a plasma tv. However, if the quality is much better, I might just have to wait for prices to come down in a few months, and then upgrade the DVD player too.
