    My DVD player has Component, 2 x S-Video & 2 Composite video outs.

    Now normally you would just have 1 of them connected up to your TV ?

    What happens if you connect up all of them to different TV's ?

    Are all the connections receivnig video all the time ro do they just turn on when there is a connection there ?
    If you have all 5 connected up does it degrade the quality since the DVD player has to send more power out ?

    Please help.

    with my dvd player, if you use component, it disables rgb and svideo output, so you only get composite.
    and the 2 svideo sockets cannot be used simultaneously.
    i suspect the 2 composites are fed continuously.
    you shld prob check your manual to determine if all are available simultaneously. at least experiment by connecting your tv to each of them in turn.

    With my Pioneer 737, I routinely have
    Component
    1 x S-Video
    1 x Composite video
    all connected up together.

    For reasons it would be boring to explain, the Component goes to the projector directly; S-video goes via the AV amp to a VCR and to the projector, and composite goes via the AV amp to the TV.

    All these outputs have a signal on them at all times.

    I'm aware that all 5 will run at the same time, what I'm really asking is will the quality degrade any if all are connected vs just having the component hooked up directly to the TV ?

    I cant see a big difference, but that is a lot of video sources it is having to throw out, I cant see how there wouldn't be loses ?

    Thanks

    Since different outputs are wired independently (and hence buffered seperately) I would not expect any visible losses.
