Sure my TV has a memory card slot, as does my Blu-ray player, but I said enjoyably. This […]

My older CRT based RPTV looked better with component.

The difference between using component and HDMI really comes down to the D>A conversion process, and where it gets done. If the TV and source have good D>A and A>D converters, there should be no difference between the two.

There would have to be a really big difference for me to switch to HDMI from component. In fact the only HDMI Matrix switch I know of is made by Gefen and only a 4×4, which sells for $2k. I would need a 8×4 to replace my component matrix switch, as well as new runs to every TV, which cost about $60 each.

What kind of content/sources have you tried so far? It was easily visible from my Comcast/Moto 6412 box at 720p, and you have a much better set than I do…

You can pick up that HDMI wallplate for about $10 at monoprice.com. The only problem with it is that it gets in the way of me pushing my TV all the way against the wall. I only ran the HDMI so I could take advantage of the 1080p output of my Blu-ray player, but I really can’t tell the difference; ohh well…

I especially like how you have a HDMI jack in the wall. It makes me want to get a new TV even though mine is only 1 year old (Panny TH42PX60U)
