I believe S-video is a little better quality, but unless you have an HDTV I doubt you would notice the difference.

That depends. Is it composite RCA or component RCA?

Composite is generally 1 video RCA cable, typically the jack will be yellow. Usually there's a set of 3, but 2 are for stereo audio.

Component is a set of 3 RCA cables. This is a high definition standard, and is of high quality for signal. The jacks will typically be red, green, and blue.

Composite < S-Video < Component

Component FTW. The only thing that will beat that is DVI/HDMI.

Thanks for the replies. Maybe, that's why the tech could'nt give me the right answer, must have phrased it incorrectly.

It's a hdtv, allthough a small one.I decided to replace my 17" monitor with a tv one that has a pc input, it's worked out so well that I decided to get rid of the monitor and bigger TV, not to mention that the stereo was always on when Tv was on. I'm a little curious about the power bill going down, getting rid of three things that allways seemed to be on.
