And you're not likely to find one either. S-Video is quite good.

Take a look at the RCA 485. I use the component outputs to my projector in the theater room. It also has two other sets of AV outputs.

The Samsung S75 is also a non HD box with component out. Best Buy sells them for around $129.

On DVD, interlaced component is better then svideo marginally, from what I've seen. You can tell the difference, it's not huge, but it's an improvemnt and that's what counts. :) On DBS, I don't know how much improvemnt you'll see. I would guess (and it's only a guess) you would get better color saturation, but you see more pixelation.

Traveler: Could you point me to where you found that great price. Lowest I've found is $110.


Also, could you confirm whether the SIR-S75 can be programmed to tune into shows on a daily and weekly basis? Thanks.
