Of the three connection options, is DVI the best in terms of image quality?
I have a Motorola DCT6412 Cable Box/DVR from Time Warner Cable. I am making the switch from Standard Def TV to a full HD set up. It is my intention to have HDMI cables connecting all the components since it was my understanding that they are the best cables for HD video. My DVR does not have an HDMI port. The options are component cables, IEEE 1394 or DVI. The AV receiver I'm looking at (Denon 3310) doesn't have a DVI port. I'd rather not connect the DVR directly to the HDTV I'm buying (Panasonic TCP54V10) and would like all video to go through my receiver.
If I use component cables to connect my HD-DVR to my receiver, will I lose image quality? Would the signal sent via component cables be analog? Of the three connection options, is DV the best in terms of image quality? Are there DVI to HDMI adapters or conversion cables? Would such a DVI to HDMI link maintain the best HD image quality?
