I've done the side-by-side test time and time again with my clients and have heard them say "YUCK, what's that signal?" to which I respond...."That's your cable TV signal going across the HDMI cable that you insisted I use !"
Hmmm. . . That does not sound right. I've yet to see component video cabling set-ups beat HDMI video.
