for Component RGB, do you mean VGA or actually Y, Ps, Pr, L, and R?

No, not VGA im talking bout the 3 separate cables that you also need to different ones for the audio input

I would use HDMI if your device supports it. It is becoming the High Definition standard for viewing full 1080P video.

Component though is also a pretty good cable system if you just need to view 1080i or 720P video. Ultimately it just comes down to what you need to use the cables for and what the devices support.

Go ahead and use HDMI. Component is starting to make it's way on being outdated.

I think HDMI has some great advantages, and a few detractors. The detractors are that they can send copyright kills through HDMI, but if you have a copyrighted Bluray disk it probably won't play with component anyway.

Go with HDMI and get your cables at monoprice.com. They make amazing cables and they are DIRT cheap.

I agree with everyone HDMI is the best and you should use it.

HDMI for two reasons. One, HDMI requires one cord for both Video and Audio, its easier to plug one cord in than 3. Two, HDMI is newer and component is eventually going to be outdated

HDMI, while component is almost as good, HDMI will give you a clearer picture.
