I have a standard definition Sony Trinitron tv that has component and composite input.
And, I have a Pioneer DVR-560H, which has component out as well as composite out.
But my standard definition cable box does not have a working component out ..
(Well, it technically has a component out, but apparently the cable company has disabled it, because they took their old hd "Explorer 3290" boxes and refurbished them to only work in SD. If anyone knows how to enable the component please let me know)
Soo my main question is:
I have the coaxial cable going from the wall to the cable box, and then I have another coaxial cable going from the cable box to the dvd recorder input. So does it make difference in the picture quality I will get from my cable box if I use component from the dvd recorder out to my tv instead of using composite cables?
And even if it doesn't improve my cable signal, will it improve the quality of what i play from my dvd recorder to my tv?
Also, if you can solve the other question at the top, in brackets, please let me know as well!
