Default HD DVD question...

I just bought a Samsung HL-S5687W and the 360 HD DVD add-on. I am currently using component cables but am considering getting VGA. I have done some research and it seems half the people like VGA and half don't. I'm curious to know if anybody owns this same tv and their opinion on VGA. Oh yeah, this is my first post so sorry if this is an old topic.

I'd go with the VGA if for anything to free up a Component spot for anything that me come down the line (Or say for a Wii or PS2)

I have the VGA cable hooked up to a LCD and it works great. I actually prefer the VGA over HDMI as my TV only has 1 HDMI which I use for my Cable Box... although I could get one of the HDMI to DVI cables for the Cable box.

Thanks guys. And from what I gather, 1080p through component is possible for games but only VGA for the Hd DVD player and upscaling?

I prefer using the VGA instead of component. I have a Samsung LNS4095D. The color is not quite the same with VGA but the picture is slightly better (it doesn't say 1080p, it says 1920x1080 which is the same) and the drive upconverts withs the VGA connection.

Correct 1080P Gaming with Component and 1080P for Upscaling and HD DVD with VGA

Thanks! Okay, new question. I'm changing my resolution on the 360 since I just purchased the vga cable. I only see one resolution that has 1080. Will it automatically choose 1080p?
