Hi everyone.
I've been hanging out in the home theater section for a while but with my newly aquired dct6412 I have a question. I have both a DVI and component connection on my projector and was wondering if there is much if any difference at 720p between the two cables? My DVI cable is just a bit short......thus the question. I'll be hooking it up tonight.

Thanks for any input.

Regards,
Jay

DVI provides the superior output.

Get a proper length cable from monoprice.com for a couple of bucks.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I would be looking at a small extension for the DVI cable as the short DVI cable runs through the wall and ceiling to the projector. It's in a conduit, but with the HDMI, component and s-video cables pulling another cable would be tough. Bad measureing on my part when putting together the home theater room!
