Default Which component would you use for S-Video?

If you didn't have enough high def inputs into your HDTV, which component (High Def game systems, High Def TV signal, or High Def DVD's) would you keep out of the loop, and send to the TV as an S-Video signal?
I imagine this is a No-Brainer, but I Thought I'd ask anyway.
I realize that there are Source Switches now for us. And now that there are Remote Controlled source switches, we don't really Have to make a choice.
HOWEVER, the reason I posted this POLL, is because I am just very curious as to what everybody is more interested in, and what they value most. Their hd games, hd tv, or hd movies.
I apologize for not making that more clear in the first place.

I would not send ANY High Def signal to my HDTV as S-Video. Its defeating your purchase; S-Video will only give you a max of 480 resolution.

I would by a switching device. My HDTV which is several years old has two component and one DVI (HDCP compliant) input. I use component for my HTPC. I use a 2 port HDMI switcher (around $60) to connect the HDMI outputs of my Dish network HD receiver and HDMI output of my XA1. Then an HDMI>DVI cable to the HDTV.

Much better solution than sacrificing the HD output of any device, in my humble opinion.

Also, with all due respect, a little more patience between clicking the "Submit" button will result in fewer double posts.

Only 2 items I'd hook up S-Video are my Dreamcast and my LD player since those are the best Video Output possible for those. If it came down to a lack of HD inputs I'd go with something like this: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...ormat=2&style=

I would say neither like the others. I would much rather pull cords and replug them because all 3 items you have, the point of them is HD content. Having said that, the Most important would be your HD_DVD, or other wise, you might as well have gotten just a nice DVD player. The one you can skip out the most on is your gaming. Although the PS3 and 360 can do HD, not everybody who got one, purchased it for the sake of HD gaming. Some just wanted the next gen gaming console so its between that or HD TV viewing because there isnt a HUGE selection of HD channels yet and you mihght just not watch a whole lot of TV

Umm, there should be a none option, because None would be my vote. I didn't even hook up S video for my non HD hardware. Component is bare minimum I've gone in a couple years.
