Question for all you experts http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


I was under the impression Component Video for HDTV was suppose to be 5 cables. Y, Pb, Pr, H, V That is what most of the old sets have. But I have noticed ALL the new sets seem to only have Y,Pb,Pr.... So what changed http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I am making a Component Switching Box right now and am wanting to make sure if I just Switch Y, Pb, and Pr I will be fine... So again did they deside to drop H, V for now on and just include that in another cable?


Thanks!

The H and V signals are included on the Y cable.

You may be confusing the two different, but similar ways, to send/receive HDTV signals in analog format.


High band component video is on 3 wires, typically called Pr, Pb, Y


RGBHV (Red, Green, Blue, Horizontal Sync, Vertical Sync) is on 5 wires.


Both methods are fully capable of HDTV signal transmission and it's very unlikely you could see any difference between the two in a direct comparison. They are incompatible with each other for connection purposes, but transcoders are available to convert one to the other.
