First off, I hope I put this in the right section. Sorry if I didn't. THIS is my TV. I tried hooking up THIS DVD/VCR via component and it looked like THIS. Yet when I connect THIS DVD player through S-Video, it looks like THIS. Notice how the clouds and flowers have much better detail in the S-Video version. And bare in mind that those are just pictures, but the component doesn't look much better than the picture shown here. I did make sure that the Progressive Scan was activated on the Sony DVD/VCR. How is it that S-Video from one DVD player looks better than component from another? Thanx in advance for all help. UPDATE: When I submitted this and then read it, I realized I hadn't tried the Magnavox via component. Only S-Video. How that eluded me? I have no idea. But I tried just now and it has the same effect. So the component on either DVD looks worse than the S-Video. WHY? Please help.
