I have a Samsung 507 that has DVI input and RGB input the stb has only rgb would it be better to hook up the stb via componet or the rgb connection. What would the picture quality difference be of these 3 connection methods.
I think the consensus is that RGB and component inputs are identical quality. Both are capable of transmitting all of the HD picture. Given that, unless you already have a RGB cable, I would use the component because more devices, including DVD players, use component. The life time of the cable will probably be greater with component.
I am using the 6000 box - and there def. is a difference in quality in the picture. I spent extra bucks to get a high quality RGB cable (the 6000 gives you a choice for HDTV of RGB or component). The component pic. on our 42" Panny plasma is much better than that via the RGB cable.
