My TV doesn't have component video connections. So, does it make sense to bring the connections from the DVD and cable box via componet video? I can go componet video from the DVD into my Denon 1804, but from there I'll have to go S-video to the TV.

Or should I just use S-video throughout gven this situation. I would gues that the connection is only as good as the weakest link.

Even though you use component cables you will not see the benefit because it has to be down converted to S-Video to your TV.

A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link, and the lack of the components on your TV would be that. The good side is that S-video isn't all that much worse than component and it's a heckuva lot cheaper having one cable linking components as opposed to three.
