In the next year or two I will be buying a high definition (ready) projector. Likewise, the next DVD player I buy should have a HDMI output and HD upscaler. I'm in a relatively large room and therefore the cable distance between my player and projector will be quite long (>5m). My question relates future proofing which video signal I should invest in: 1) Would I be right in thinking that HDMI will provide a superior picture quality than even the excellent component video? 2) Assuming I get a HDMI player and projector, would the additional cost of a lengthy HDMI cable and its inherent picture quality outway that of a less expensive component cable? The addition size of the component cable is another factor I guess. 3) Where does DVI come in? It doesn't seem to be very popular on players or is that to change when High Definintion kit comes along? I don't want to buy a component cable now only to replace it in a year or two with HDMI and hence making it redundant.
