The question doesn't address the audio portion of the HDMI cable, just its ability to carry an HD signal.

My experience is that if the source has video processing superior to the display its best to let it do the processing and send it to the display via analog component cables. If the display is the device with better video processors then send it digitally via DVI or HDMI.

My DVD player looks better using components compared to DVI, while my DSS looks best via DVI.

I assume that audio is the same. Whichever component has the better DAC's should be the one doing the conversion to analog.
