Well, the OP sees vehicles transform into giant robots, so I guess it's not too far fetched

Dumb question from a TV noob:

Your TV is much bigger (58" vs 47"). Could it simply be that larger TVs look a bit fuzzier than smaller ones?

it all depends on the scaling and video systems used on the equipment and television. there are some combos that make component look better than hdmi.

in addition, component is about 150,000 times more reliable.

I dont personally have any pioneers and I dont keep the setting info from customers.

Check out the AVS forums, there will be a ton of guys sharing their setups.
