    Does VGA put out a better image than component video with a DVD player, or are they the same? I'm considering the Yamakawa 288 with VGA to hook up directly to VGA input of my X1 projector. Would image be better because I'm not converting VGA to component video? Thanks for any advice.

    Where can you buy the Yamakawa 288 dvd player in the UK?

    BTW. VGA should be a lot better then component but the reality is, once your sitting far enough away from the screen; i'm not sure how big a difference you will actually see.
    Mind you. Most PJ's give you a lot more choice in tweaking when connected to a VGA signal.

    VGA is not an actual colour space such as component YUV, it is a connection type. The VGA port on my plasma accepts either a YUV or RGBHV colour space signal.
    The standard signal on VGA tends to be RGBHV (as used by a PC monitor) which is the best colour space to use and so should give the best PQ as long as a fairly good quality cable is used.
