Hi

I have Philips Pixcel Plus-II TV which has AV3/AV4 Digital High Definition input connection. It has YPbPr input. The Y, Pb and Pr jacks and to the L and R AUDIO jacks to accept high definition signal standards 1080i and 480p.

Today DTH providers are providing HD set top boxes which has HDMI & YPbPr output available.

Since my TV does not have HDMI port will it be wise decision to go for HD set top box with YPbPr connectivity for better clarity of tv channels over normal composite AV cable.

Or normal AV cable is better than YPbPr cable.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance
Sameer

Yes, Y/Pb/Pr will be superior to composite. Composite will give you only standard-def, while component (Y/Pb/Pr) will support 720p and 1080i, and component will also give you better color definition than composite.

Nonsense. There is no technical reason why hdmi should produce a better result than component. Analog v. digital has nothing to do with it. It is all analog in the end. Whether HDMI gives a better result than component in a given case will depend on the capabilities of the DACs where the conversion is done.
