My HDTV has available Firewire inputs and my HD cable box has Firewire
outputs.  Would I be able to improve picture quality by using the Firewire
connections instea of the component video outputs?  Is there any other
advantage I should consider here? FYI-  my TV doesn't have an HDMI input.

Re: Firewire vs. Component Video Connections

although the firewire is capable of both the audio and the video bandwidth
requirements, most if not all manufacturers these days only utilize the
firewire for audio only. since this interface does not include copyright
protection (thanks mpaa).
