This has all been super helpful and confirmed my beliefs. I would like to see a similar article on the merits of connecting an HD PVR to a TV using an HDMI / DVI cable versus connecting via component.
The FAQ seems to suggest there should be virtually no difference in picutre quality but then makes some statement that on LCD TVs (I have a rear projection LCD) there may be a difference, ie. HDMI/DVI may give a better quality picture than component. (Not in the DVD player context, but in a HD-PVR to TV context).
