YPbPr Vs HDMI


Hi

I have Philips Pixcel Plus-II TV which has AV3/AV4 Digital High Definition input connections. It has YPbPr input. The Y, Pb and Pr jacks and to the L and R AUDIO jacks to accept high definition signal standards 1080i and 480p.

Today DTH providers are providing HD set top boxes which has HDMI & YPbPr output available.

Since my TV does not have HDMI port will it be wise decision to go for HD set top box with YPbPr connectivity for better clarity of tv channels over normal composite AV cable.

Or normal AV cable is better than YPbPr cable.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance
Sameer

Re: YPbPr Vs HDMI

See if you want Audio DTH/Dolby/5.1 etc you need a HDMI cable as its single hybrid cable that caters to both AV. If u r purely consedring Video, all 3 types i.e. DVI, HDMI n YPbPr are able to deliver HD as they have the necessary bandwidth. The primary diff being that HDMI n DVI carry digital signals n YPbPr n Composite carry Analog signals. Since yr box does not have HDMI n if yr TV does not support 1080p, u should be least bothered. This is a long debate n u need to get into the nitty gritty of all this. Difference between Component n composite can be noted on Large HiDef tvs but if you have a very good source n you dont have that good eye, u will hardly notice the difference. Sice you have a HiDef box, I will still advise you to go for a YPbPr cable of good quality

Composite is SD only. It can carry max 480i signal. Please edit your post and modify the wrong info posted.

Re: YPbPr Vs HDMI

YPbPr does makes a difference. I have seen this everywhwere.
Composite video can not handle HDTV singnal where as Component can although both are analog. It will give more clear image any time due to 3 different colour bands instead of 1. You are lucky than you have one of best Tvs available in India. Please us HD Box without second thought. You will not regret.

thanks so much sir. 480p is mentioned in Philips user guide.
today i got HD set installed but unfortunately i did not find component YPbPr cable due to 15th Aug all shops were closed.

I tried using AV cable in YPbPr jack, i could not get any video however when i connected to audio. it worked.

Just waiting for the YPbPr cable to see the difference between Composite n Component display.

I am only looking for good video clarity not much bothered about audio.

thanks so much
