I read some people here finds the picture better in s-video than component...

So if others can give us a hint about this weird fact, i'd love to read them.

With this unit ... either way you will need a breakout cable (supplied) because the "s-video" isn't really S-video. I would recommend trying both. You may be surprised.

I saw it with both ... they both had their plusses and minus. The component's color was GREAT but blacks tended to fade into each other. On the s-video, the blacks were even and defined but the colors were obviously not as good (but still pretty darn good!)

Damn, this is not helping me ;)

The main prob is that i have a Pioneer 717, with no component.

So i question myself about changing it for a component out dvd-player, but if obviously s-video is as good as component...

I really don't know.

:confused:

Remember that the quality of the outputs from DVD players also varies. Some appear to have better S-video than component.


I suspect that the component input of the X1 will be better in general.


Solution: TRY BOTH.

Meaning trying it in the store, as i have NOT component on my dvd-player.

But i guess in absolute, component should be better than s-video...

If you have a good sources, both s-video and component should look very good. Having tested a number of DVD players, I will say that the s-video outputs seem much more consistent (ie good) than the component outputs, especially on inexpensive DVD players.
