Question about Samsung PCL545R 54" Rear Projection Television
I am using a red,white and yellow cable instead of a red lue and green cable going into my cable box does that really matter?
Based on the description that you provided, it sounds like you are using a bundled composite video cable to connect your cable box and TV. Composite video cables generally consist of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively.
Red/green/blue bundled cables however, are often referred to as component video cables - each of the three colored cables is used to transmit a different portion of the same video image from one device to another, and require a second separate cable (typically red/white) to transmit an audio signal.
The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. Please keep in mind however that this is not a guarantee that changing from your current set-up to component cables will improve the picture quality on your TV, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.
Additionally, many retailers may suggest changing your current configuration to one using HDMI cables instead to improve picture quality even further. Unlike composite and component cables, standard coaxial cables, and S-Video cables which transmit analog signals, HDMI cables are designed to instead transmit uncompressed digital signals. This typically means that more information is available for your TV to process in terms of color hue, color intensity, as well as image resolution. Again, remember that any perceived improvements will be based on both personal preference as well as your home theater configuration.
Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.
Hope this helps you out.
