I have read countless times that if you own a DVD player that can output Component a signal, then you should use it with your plasma. I had previously hooked up my DVD (Pioneer DVR7000) to my old LG14 panel and compared the output with RGB into the same - for me RGB was *miles* better. Today, now I have my spanking new Hitachi 42PD3000 I tried the same comparision - and again, the RGB picture is far superior. Can anyone give some opinions on this? I know picture quality varies from person to person as to what each prefer, but I am surprised at the amount of support Component gets when I think it's quite bad. Could it be my DVD player that is not outputting a particularaly good Component signal? Could it be my component cables (altough they are Ixos)? Are there any other tweaks I should be trying while connected via Component? Thanks for any comments!
