Video connections

Just got a new Panasonic TH-42PD50U plasma TV, and DirecTV will not come until Wednesday to hook up the HD. I now have a regular TiVo (will be getting the new HD DVR from DTV, and my question is...when making connections (HDMI, S-video, coax) does it do any harm to have them all connected together? Does one override the others?

Right now am using coax from the dish, and the PQ is still absolutely amazing. I cannot fathom how good it will be 1) when I change to the better connections and 2) when I get HD.

Read the owners manual for your TV it should explain all the connections and is one will override another.

It doesn't hurt to have multiple connected.

The HR10-250 only sends video through the HD connections at 480p, 720p and 1080i. SVideo, RCA and Coax only get output at 480i. You must select your output resolution only.

Only HDMI/DVI and Component video can carry a HD signal from the HR10-250 to your TV. Many people have problems with HDMI. Component looks almost as good. I use it, and recommend it, as the optimal point between image quality and reliability.

Thanks, but if I had found it in my TV owner's manual, I would not have asked the question on this board. If you know, a simple, "yes" it overrides or "no" it doesn't, would be appreciated.

P.S. Meant this reply for ClemSole and posted it before above reply.

It depends on what your meaning of "was" is.

what the hell are you talking about ??

some say if HDMI is connected on the hr10-250 the component will not work, but s-video and composite will. the hr10-250 does not have coax out.

the pic quality will change little for SD programming between coax and hdmi, but of course HD will look way better.

Ask the dealer you bought it from since they will obviously know or should know.

Well, just doing a quick check on prices - I hope for your sake that it is $3500-4000 better.

yes you are correct only one of the hd outputs will work at a time either the component or hdmi and the svideo and composite outputs are always on
