Yes, Component is marginally better than RGB, as component will give you better black levels, but it is hard to spot and few will ever see the difference.

You might want to check if your DVD player can output progressive video over component (RGB does not support progressive video). If your DVD player does support progressive output, the you would want to use component, and set the DVD player to progressive output.

I have a bit of a prob though cause i think i only have one component port on my tv and my xbox 360 goes to it, can i get a splitter of some kind so i can add my xbox and dvdr by component to my tv ? if not then i have to decide which ones more important to go to component dvdr or xbox360 ?


Thanks Mick

Not true, Component video should make no difference to the black levels at all.

The reason for using Component is that it's one of few connection types that lets you turn on Progressive Scan video. If your DVD player has Component outputs it can probably send Progressive pictures which should decrease, or if you've got a good player, totally remove any jagged motion you see during films.
