Re: dvd player connections

Only HDMI and Component cables will send all of the available video resolutions to a monitor.  S-Video and composite will not send the higher resolutions.

 

So, to maximize the resolution that your DVD player can send, use the best connection possible.

 

To get a more thorough explanation of video connections, please check out this article. http://hometheatermag.com/hookmeup/107hook/

 

I hope that this helps.
