My 4:3 32" Loewe Calida TV (first generation) has S-Video line doubled inputs that I can view in anamorphic (16:9 squeeze) mode and a 480P VGA input that is progressive which is stuck in 4:3 mode.


Which input should I use for my Samsung SIRT150 HDTV STB--which is going to look better on HDTV content:


[1] The Samsung in 16:9 mode feeding 480i signal to line doubled, anamorphic 16:9 squeezed S-Video input? Rationale: using the full resolution with the squeeze.


[2] The Samsung in 4:3 mode feeding 480p signal to the progressive 480P VGA input? Rationale: signal stays progressive, so no line doubling artifacts to be seen.


What do you folks think is the way to go?

Given the choice between downconversion artifacts and loss of resolution (your VGA mode) and early-generation doubling artifacts (plus loss of color bandwidth and increased noise by using s-video)...


Ouch.


Probably VGA mode, but you really have to try it both ways and decide for yourself.

I can report in that VGA is the way to go. WITHOUT QUESTION.


The S-Video out of my DVD player looks better than the S-Video out of the Samsung.
