    In theory, no, but in practise it depends.

    Agreed. It has been noted that older Toshiba models can display s-video at a higher quality than RGB. The current models show little or no difference.

    I've used S-video and RGB, I find no difference,I've used it on two different set-ups in the past and now still use S-video.<br />It is worth trying both option's,the 2 set-ups I've done,

    I've always found RGB far superior to S-Video on several different TVs over the years.

    RGB is much bolder and more stable. The colours are richer and more defined.

    The thing about S-Video that fools most people is that the the picture is brighter than RGB and people's faces, especially stand out more. But you will ALWAYS get 'noise' and grain with <br />S-Video which can be seen on closer inspection. Also note the dark shimmering outline around objects none of which is present in RGB.
