I can understand for the Wii, but why on earth wouldn't you use an HDMI cable for the 360 & PS3?

>>324050620
No, it's not. It's the video signal separated into different pins. It still uses the rca red and white stereo wires. It looks WAY better than composite.

Component whenever possible, s-vid for retro nintendo stuff... Until HD Retrovisions finally gets their shot straight.

It has a huge increase in quality over composite. Not as good as component or RGB, but if those two aren't available it's definitely the best choice.

RF antenna screws, but the little Y prongs on my connector have bent and broken off so I have to strip the plastic back to expose the wire and wrap it around the screws on the TV before tightening them down.

nah it's not about shielding, it's just that the connectors themselves are better when you have L/R dedicated RCA jacks instead of pins. That's why people mod SCART to include them sometimes.

Naw man how about fuck you. There is a very noticeable difference in quality among certain cables for certain systems. Getting a cable often isn't some sort of crazy expenditure either.

Here is a good lesson for you to learn: don't settle for shit.
>>
>>324051394
RGB SCART is actually the best one for that if you don't plan on playing anything with higher res than 480i.
PS2 doesn't have good colors over component.

I swear I could only tell the difference with the PS2's menu but games always looked the same.

>>324051394
That's actually one of the cases where S-vid is better if you aren't playing at 480p
>>
>>324051568

Nope. Component looks better than Composite and S Video at 480i as well. Brings out the colors more and the picture is sharper. If you play PS2 on an LCD, there is no comprehensible reason to use anything except Component/HDMI.
>>
>>324051547
No I used HDMI outputs and streaming like a fucking normal person.

Its fine to like any of those 3, but arguing over them like one is better then the other? thats theres actually a notable difference?

you faggots have infested /vr/ with this shit. and enough is enough. they're all the same when in motion anyways, and kid you never gave a shit, so why give one now?

Every Dreamcast and Xbox game supported 480p. Every GameCube game worth playing supported 480p. The PlayStation 2 had maybe 5~10 games tops with 480p support unless you forced it through GSM, and GSM came around after the PS2 had died and nobody cared about it anymore.

Tekken looks a lot better on Component. As for the other games, I'd like to see is TV color settings.

DVI and HDMI are identical, picture-wise

>>324050620
S-video is halfway between composite and component/RGB.

Human perceptual colorspace is three dimensional, so you need three independent channels, whether it's RGB, brightness/hue/saturation, or whatever.

Composite puts all three on the same wire modulated into different frequency bands that the display needs to re-separate, component uses three separate cables.

S-video uses two signal wire pairs, one for brightness, and the other with combined color/saturation, which the display still has to electronically separate.
Each sub-signal is identical to the composite version, and the brightness/color signals could be put back on one wire with a stupidly simple adapter.
>>

I'd rather use composite than live in a third world PAL country.

It always depends on the console.

Yes, obviously component supports higher resolution. That doesn't make a cable the greatest automatically when wanting the best picture quality.
>>
I've recently started using component cables for my PS2.
It seems to me that it makes the games look way cleaner and sharper, so that only the aliasing caused by the resolution remains. I couldn't compare side-by-side though for obvious reasons so I'm not sure if there's a difference or if it's just all in my head.

The best resolution to play at is the native resolution of your display.

Framerate. 576i is usually paired with 25fps or 50fps, while 480i is usually 30 or 60fps.

Because the rest of the world (particularly US and Japan) used to use 480, most games are designed to run at 30 or 60fps and often have issues and various timing-related bugs with PAL framerates.

>>
>>324056970
I'm aware of both and how some developers designed their games with a fuzzy RF/composite signal in mind. But that's on a case-by-case basis and it's nearly impossible to determine how a developer intended for their game to be presented, especially when you factor in re-releases and remasters that alter how the game looked. So as a pure video signal, component is objectively the best of out of this lot.
>>

I have heard that as well, but as I'm sure you're aware, the difference in image quality is absolutely not worth the retarded prices you have to pay to get a GC component cable these days (here's hoping that guy who reverse-engineered them in 2014 actually does something with it)

for me as a PAL user, GC component cables are a hilariously overpriced meme because PAL GC's cannot ever output a 480p signal no matter what cables you plug in there. glad I never wasted money on that I guess

>Apparently GC games on BC Wiis + component cables are less sharp than when played on a GC + component cables
I've heard this as well

>>324057776
>I think they're even more expensive than that.
You're right, when I looked at them a few years ago they were on average between $90-150. Now they seem to be $200-300. Fuck

There is a huge difference, I grew up playing Gamecube with S-Video and whenever we played Smash on a TV with composite it was instantly noticeable because of how blurry and shit it looked, all in an era before HDTVs were popular.

I use S-Video when I can since my that's the best my Trinitron can use. Used component cables on my PS2 before, though, and damn was the video quality vastly improved over composite.

tell me anon, what's 2025 like?

>>324057776
The GC component cables had a chip in them and the first-model Wiis had a slightly weak graphics processor, there's no dithering but the main thing you'll notice is slightly weaker color output. It can be compensated for by creating a custom color setting on your TV though.

What the fuck is wrong with /v/?

But the OP was about Composite, S-video, and Component.

Component for this bad boy.
