I've tried component and HDMI from my projector and I prefer HDMI. I've got a 45 foot HDMI cable from BlueJeans Cable that works like a charm.
It's pretty obvious why projectors have HDMI inputs.

Good thing I didn't spend hundreds of dollars from future shop on rip off HDMI cables. Keep things separate!

$12 on Ebay including shipping. Does the same job.

Not sure what the point of this is since there's no use able info in it. Anyone seeking info on HDMI can go to the HDMI.org FAQ section for everything you'll need to know:

Advantages of HDMI:

-With HDMI you can do 1080p resolution and Bluray and 3d. With component cables you cant.
-Only with HDMI can you output SACD, DVDA etc digital signals from universal player.
-More convenient and perhaps more cost effective, being A&V in one cable.

However, with HDMI (being a digital cable) you rely on downstream tv / receiver etc. to do the dac, thus the reason why some achieve better quality with component video plus some kind of audio cables, despite the above advantages... To me component video doesn't make sense anymore unless it's used with a non bluray /hi res device.

Yes, makes more sense now than 3 years ago when this thread was relevant...
BTW, SACD and DVD-A can be had over analog outputs from a player in PCM, not just HDMI. I understand you are saying in digital form, which is true but confusing to some.
cheers

I noticed that, and to add insult the orig was started in 05'. Look how the dates skip, year after year or two someone dug it back out. Way to keep a trend going :lol:
