    Here is my question:

    I have a Motorola HD set top box for my HD cable. I currently have it connected to my Westinghouse 37 inch LCD via component video cables, but it does have a DVI output.

    My TV does not have an HDMI input, but does have DVI. So, would I notice much, if any difference if I went the DVI route as opposed to component?

    Thanks for the info!

    Might noticed a difference, I personally believe if I have the option to use a better/digital connection then I use it.

    HDMI = DVI + S/PDIF. If your TV doesn't have speakers or a preamp built in, there's no reason for it to have a digital audio decoder, or a plug capable of taking in audio, is there?

    Anyway, yes, you should use a DVI cable.
