[mythtv-users] s-video or component for SD on the HD-PVR?

I'm using an HD-PVR for all channels, 70% of which are SD. I'm using
component/SPDIF for everything. Some of my SD channels are unreliable
on the HD-PVR, and I often have to change channels and back again to
fix lock problems. All the HD channels work perfectly. I'm wondering
if I can improve things by using the s-video and RCA inputs for SD
content. Can anyone tell me how the quality of the svideo input
compares with the component, assuming SD channels are transmitted over
component at 480p?
