[mythtv-users] A litte OT : better image quality

I don't have HDTV.
My TV has 4 scarts and a side Svideo in, and 2 digital audio in. 
EXT3 and 4 CVBS only

I do have my DVD player connected to EXT1 and dig in 1.
TV decoder connect to EXT2 (only works on this scart)
Playstation to EXT3 and dig in 2.
and pundit to EXT4.

Not much I can do, no ? :(
Does this setup has the "component" video you talk about ? :) (sorry for my  low understanding about video formats)

i have the averkey gold 3 i believe its called.. and i was very very 
disapointed in the quality of the picture.. it also can not keep up with 
fast motion..

my question is if you have a HDTV why not use a vga to component 
adapter? or DVI?
