    the only one with component is the netgem but was told by a member who has one that RGB gave a better PIC...The SONY is supposed to be a pretty good one right now depends if you want PVR or TUTV functionality otherwise SONY seems a good bet

    The Netgem IPlayer does component

    Sony does a good ordinary box

    THere are also the PVRs to consider
