But, don't the HDMI offer much better audio (in 1 cable) being that my receiver is connected to the setup as well. I mean, I bought these $$ HDMI cables that worked very nicley for my Comcast setup and now I might have to buy component cables? That don't sit right with me. I only hope the HDMI's work....... Bob
The installer should have component cables, just have him leave a set just in case. And with the component cables, you can use a optical cable, and in my opinion optical gives the best digital sound, better then HDMI. But even a digital coaxial (you can use 1 RCA cable) gives great surround sound. Unless you are a big time audiophile you will not notice the difference between the 3 digital formats.
