I ordered a DVI Cable last night and expect it later this week, when it arrives I plan on cleaning up the cables between my Samsung DLP, Scien Atlanta HD Box and Surround receiver. Right now I have Coax, S vid and Component hooked up to the TV but after I connect the DVI I can eliminate either the S vid or Component connections.. Which is a better connection or has anyone gone with just DVI for all viewing? Coax is staying for is can be used for PNP plus if there are ever problems with Adelphia's Digital signal the analog seems to be always trusty.. Also I might stick with S video connection instead of Component since with the Samsung DLP you have more aspect options with S video then with Component.. "Input" would be greatly appreciated :)

All you need is one cable, DVI. There is really no need to use anything else. You should keep a Coax around or connected after a splitter if you like to use analog PIP on your TV.

Well received my DVI cable and found all HD and digital channels are much better using the DVI connection but the analog channels seem to get a better pic using S Video connection.. Must be a Adelphia thing I presume.. Also with my Sammy HLN when in DVI there are no options as far as aspect choices unlike in S Video where all aspect options are available, lucky for the digital channels which do not fill the screen the SA HD receiver has the options for stretch and zoom, when watching digital non HD channels I use the stretch option to fill the full screen..
