    it has been recommended by someone on the av message board that the component out on the hd10 has a better looking picture than using the dvi out and that i can connect the component out to the pc in on my panny th42phd6uy using a component to vga (db15) and then set my panel to component signal type. has anyone tried this and is there any opinion on whether i should spend the additional $100+ to get a dvi blade for my panny? thanks

    On my projector (Sanyo PLV-70) I prefer the component to dvi. I will admit I have not tried to tune the picture on the dvi port yet so I might change my opinion after doing that. The PLV-70 treats the dvi as a computer signal instead of HD which certainly is an issue. The dvi looks a little too sharp for my taste compared to the component being a touch softer and more color saturated. Both look spectacular at 119". Most of the time I leave the HD10-250 in 1080i unless I am watching ABC or ESPN when I switch to 720p. For the SD material I use 1080i.
