How can I be sure I'm getting the best picture quality with my DIRECTV System?


For the best connection on an HD Receiver, use the HDMI or component outputs. For the best connection on a standard definition receiver, use S-video. Composite (yellow) is a good quality connection, but not as good as S-video. You can also use RF/coax to your TV, but this signal is not as good as S-video or composite.
