[mythtv-users] Image quality, what effects it?

So I have my mythtv set up, insofar as it records properly.
However I am not happy as yet with the output, neither livetv nor
The image seems grainy. Now currently I am attributing this mostly to
the WinTV bt8x8 that I am using. Once my PVR250 arrives I will know
better where I stand. In particular the color is a bit washed out. Even
with a filter. I understand the bt8x8 are known for this.
I have a couple more questions though...
Is there a quality difference between svideo and composite?
How much effect does the cable quality have on the output?
What kind of vertical and horizontal refresh do people find a standard
analog TV can do? Specifically does anyone know what a sony trinitron
32 inch KV32S42 do?
I am thinking I want to switch from svideo to composite out, for the
primary reason that if I do that I can use my reciever (svideo overides
my Sony Trinitrons composite video in). Of course only if I do not
loose quality as a result.
