your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For
example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed
by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder
with S-video etc.Note:
The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface
capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI
provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source,
such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an
AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as
a digital television (DTV).
The Digital Visual
Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not
transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your
device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to
connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter.
Component video is an
analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition
signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the
audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or
abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal
that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and
colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals
in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries
standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable.
Composite video is an
analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use
if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality.
RF Coaxial Cable
connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video)
originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.
