Definitions of Interface

RF:  An analog interface that uses an RF output via coax wherein the audio and video are modulated onto analog channel 3 or 4.  RF only supports displaying video in 480i.

Composite:  An analog interface that uses a 3 wire connection for 1 video (Yellow) and 2 audio (White, Red) with RCA connectors and jacks.  It is also called Baseband.  Composite only supports displaying video in 480i.  A Composite connection will provide better video quality than an RF connection.

S-Video:  An analog interface that uses a 4-pin connection for video only.  It is also called Y/C.  An audio connection can be completed by using the Composite audio connections.  S-Video only supports displaying video in 480i.  An S-Video connection will provide better video quality than an RF connection.

Component:  An analog interface that uses a 3 wire connection for 3 components of the video (Red, Green, Blue).  It is also called YPbPr.  Component supports displaying video in 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i.  An audio connection can be completed by using the Composite audio connections or SPDIF connections.

DVI-D (Digital Visual Interface-Digital):  A digital interface that uses a 24-pin connection for video only.  DVI-D is generically referred to as DVI.  DVI-D supports video in 480i , 480p, 720p and 1080i.  An audio connection can be completed by using the Composite audio connections or SPDIF connections.  The HDTV and Digital Receiver connected by DVI must synchronize before displaying video.  The HDTV must support HDCP, otherwise the screen will be blank, without audio.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface):  A digital interface that uses a multi-pin connection for video and audio.  HDMI supports video in 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i.  The HDTV and Digital Receiver connected by HDMI must synchronize before displaying video.  The HDTV must support HDCP, otherwise the screen will be blank, without audio.  Video between DVI-D and HDMI ports is compatible with a physical adapter, but audio would need to be connected separately.

HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection):  A specification applied to DVI and HDMI connections to provide content protection over the digital connection.  All Digital Receivers use HDCP on their digital connections.  TVs must also support HDCP to be connected to the Receiver by DVI or HDMI.  No audio or video will be available through the DVI/HDMI connection if the TV does not support HDCP.

SPDIF:  A digital audio connection using either a coaxial connection with RCA connectors or an optical connection using multi-mode fiber.  SPDIF supports stereo and surround sound audio.

1394/Firewire:  Uses a 4-pin or 6-pin connector.  1394 supports video in 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i.  It also carries audio.  The IPG (Interactive Program Guide) overlay graphics are not supported in the 1394 specifications for video streaming.  Therefore, 1394 is not recommended for use as a primary display interface.  It can be used in archiving content to 1394 Digital VCRs.  This video connection generally can not be used to connect to PCs, media devices, etc.
