Excuse me for slightly changing the subject, but I just got an X1 and am working out cabling and inputs now. My STB has an RGB out (Sony HD200). If I use the VGA cable that came with the X1, will that give me optimum HDTV quality? I assume it would be better than using Component out into a Component/VGA adapter?
And if I use the RGB on the X1 with the STB, what about my DVD? Use S-Video?
I'd use VGA from the STB to the X1. And if your DVD player is interlaced use Component to the S-Video in on the X1 with the adapter. Otherwise just use S-video, it is still supprisingly good with a decent player. If the DVD player is progressive try it on the VGA in with an addaptor and see it is any better, but this would mean u need a switch box to switch VGA input and component/vga adaptors.
Thanks for the response. The DVD is a Denon 1600 (progressive). I'll use the VGA cable that came with the X1 for STB->X1 and since I already have an s-video cable I'll use it for DVD->X1. That's the easiest and fastest You've raised some good options if I want to push higher.
