Subjectso is component better than an rgb scart? Reply to this message

I just bought a new LCD TV set (Samsung LE40S86BD if you're interested - I know the R series performs better, but this was less expensive).

I wonder how am I supposed to connect stuff to it. Analogically, since I have nothing supporting HDMI or DVI (yet?).

I have an understading that RGB scart > S-Video > Composite, since the information travelling on different channels is more clean and so on.

However, I am in doubt about component vs rgb. In both cases there are three channels carrying the same information, only distributed differently (rgb are primary colours, component is luminance + red difference + blue difference (green can be obtained by summation)).

So I was wondering, what is better? And why. I have a basic knowledge of signal theory and communications, so a tech explanation would be welcome.

Also: I have the regular cable and an s-video cable for my XBox (not 360), should I upgrade to RGB scart? Do xbox->component/hdmi cable exist anywhere, that I can order, if it's worth?

Sorry if the questions sound stupid :P
