I am wondering if there is an easy way to identify various component connections and cables, including interlaced component for 480i, progressive component for 480p and broadband component for 720p and 1080i. Thanks for any information on that.


BTW, is possible to output 1080p through component connections and cables?

I would think the easiest way to tell would be an on-screen display on the tv or the tuner box. No such thing as a interlaced or progressive cable. Its all rg6 anyways.

A component cable consists of 3 coaxial cables with RCA jacks on both ends. There is a green colored one for the Y, a red colored one for Pr, and a blue colored one for Pb.


Component cables will work for 480I, 480P, 1080I, or 720P.

Does that mean no difference between component cables in terms of their bandwidth, so all cables can handle high resolution video signals up to 720p and 1080i?

The quality/bandwidth of various component cables varies quite a bit, the best use regular 75ohm coax which can handle up to UHF frequencies (
