Even better than S-Video

One of the things I bought at Best Buy yesterday was a set of component video cables. A conversation with Age last week had led me to check the back of my five-year-old TV to confirm my vague thought that it had component video jacks... three separate connectors for red, green, and blue. Since the new Humax TiVo DVD recorder I got last year has component video out, the component cables seemed worth trying.

Took a few minutes to muscle the tight, gold Monster connectors onto the long-unused jacks on the back of the TV just now, but I now have an even sharper picture on my TV. Noticeable on my digital satellite TV picture, and should be even better for well-produced DVDs... of which I added several to my collection yesterday!
