I get the impression, on this Forum at least, that component is "the thing". Clearly anything that throws information away (eg composite) is going to be inferior, but why do I get the impression that component is preferred over RGB, when one is a straight 3-wire transform of the other? If your plasma takes in component, it will have to transform this to RGB to drive the panel. Are the signals actually very similar in quality? Is it more a matter of the connector? The peritel connector hardly looks impedance matched, so perhaps this is the weak link with RGB? Would RGB be as good as component if it were shipped around through three BNCs? Looking for some informed enlightenment!
