From what I have seen component output and DVI PQ are close and DVI is more about copy protection and lucrative content licensing schemes.
DVI splitters can be gotten, cost >$200, but they are out there. I'm not sure that anyone who's view I trust has said that DVI has made a huge
improvement on a display so far. The best cases are where a display is not good looking on svideo/component and DVI cleans it up, but it's rare. That will change as displays get better but by then the DVI spec would have changed, again.
Most cable providers are moving very slow in providing HDTV boxes with digital outputs, there is fear now that it could allow for "signal theft."
