I have an 811 that I have hooked up to my plasma with DVI. What is the advantage of hooking up the svideo and dvi cable. I can't tell a difference in the SD channels on either. DVI stretched SD looks same as Svideo normal, so whats the plus in using both??

svideo uses the internal scaler of your plasma screen while DVI will scale using the 811 scaler. With svideo you use the stretch modes of the TV. Lots of times this can result in actually better SD PQ through svideo than DVI. You can also set your the 811 for 480p and then use the TVs scaler through DVI. At least that is my understanding.

What you get with SD and HD through your DVI is convience. PQ between the two might look the same and this not surprising.
