A lot of posts here and elsewhere about folks trying to get “the best” signal for recording/playing audio and video material with the general advice being that composite is lowest, then S-video which is pretty good, then component which is the best (talking analogue here!)
For me, (for most of us?) the FIRST signal into the house via cable or from my attic antenna is thru the RF cable–ie, single wire with all the signals combined.
I don’t recall ever reading about “the quality” of the RF signal as a source for recording but “ALL” authorities say to use any other connection for display purposes.
MY QUESTION===>if the first signal is over the RF–how do any of the downstream conversion/split signals get any better? Is this all marketing hype or is there a real difference that is noticeable? ((I’ve looked and don’t see any!))
Ultimately, seems that RF modulators and wireless systems are set up to (cheaply) distribute RF signals from computer to dvd to tv that is not generally refered to in most guides. If RF signal is “good enough” seems a lot of people, myself included, would benefit from knowing this.
Any thoughts?? Thanks.
