    Which method of video connection is best?

    RGB or S-Video?



    Which DVD to AMP audio connection is better, Optical or Coaxial?

    The hierachy generally goes;
    1.)Composite video
    2.)S-Video
    3.)RGsB
    4.)Component video
    5.)RGBS
    6.)RGBHV
    Theres not a lot between 3/4/5 and has more to do with the connection method. unfortunately RGB in its various forms tends to be flawed over here due to the rather dodgy SCART connection method :) Component tends to be best for DVD as thats the system used for encoding the discs :smashin:
