    Hbombtoo,
    what cable system other then Hdtv comcast has componet or s-video out on there boxes???????

    Here's the bottom line with cable and Hdtv ready tv's......they don't mix.The cable even at it's best can only put out 240 lines of resolution.It can't fill the screen.
    Cvr's look like hell due to the fact of low resolution.Again on a good day for a non s-video vcr 240 lines.......that sucks.

    Now if you want some better quality picture.Dss can do 400 lines.
    Laserdisk can as well.

    DVD is what it is in 480i or 480p.....that my friend looks real good.

    Hdtv from cable, DSS or abtenna is the best way to go.

    If you can have digital cable and there sidecar Hdtv where you live.......this is the only way to watch cable on a widescreen tv...that is if you must keep cable that is..

    Get the cable company out there and have them test all your lines for db loss.They can amp each line to fill the lost db.This should make it the best it can be.

    Cable is what it is man..you get what it got.

    Something you might try... If you're using a non-powered splitter, you MAY have weakened the signal enough to matter. If you can connect the one TV without the splitter in the way and see a difference, that'll tell you that an a powered splitter (or an amplifier ahead of the splitter) could help. Otherwise, it's probably just the cable's inherent quality. (No benefit amplifying crap!)
