    trying to hook my GC and PS2 back in my room, i noticed that my TV also has a component input and a S-Video input...so i was wondering....

    can you tell the difference (A/V to S-Vid, A/V to Comp, S/Vid to Comp) on a Tube TV? (i have a 28" Panasonic, bought in 2002)

    a HD TV will come eventually but not anytime soon.

    Depends on the quality of the TV and how good an eye you have for it, I had no problem seeing the difference between S-Video and RGB inputs on the high end 28" SD CRT that I had before my current 32" LCD HDTV.

    I see a bigger difference in the Comp output then I did in the S-video. Right now I have the PS2 on the A/V, the Gamecube on the S-video and the 360 on the comp. I've got a 36" Panasonic tube.
