Using component, there was much less aliasing.
You can read this as inicating that HDMI is passing high-frequency detail -- and so is better. Which it should be.
In my case, I need the HDMI for other reasons, so I'm using component. I don't think I'll miss the detail and the fact I get a less aliasing is a side benefit.
I have a native 1280x720 Sony A10. Amazingly, I think the pix is better via 1080i. I remember that tests showed there was a difference between 720p and 1080i AND the difference depended on whether film or vieo was being displayed. Can anyone explain this?
