Default Please Help! HDMI or Component?

Have a A2 Toshiba and a Samsung DLP

Can either get 1080i through components or 720p through HDMI/DVI (due to my DLP being a couple of years old)

Which is better HD in you opinion?.

to me...the colors or more vibrant in HDMI...but not sure as far as the picture goes between the two.

I'd run HDMI personally. And if you think the colors are better with HDMI but the clarity is negligible either way, I'd say HDMI is better for you.

If you run HDMI and add an audio system down the road I personally feel that hooking up (and quality) with HDMI is superior.

Is there a difference visually between 720p and 1080i?

720p has a lower resolution than 1080i. If you have a television with a display capable of producing a 1920x1080 image (1080i/p) then you will probably notice a higher clarity and more detail. If your set is only capable of up to 720p then you probably won't notice any difference as your tv is downscaling the 1080 resolution to 720 anyway.
