Video Cables

There seems to be alot of digital (optical) cables for audio, but is there any for video? There must be, but what? So post different digital video cables (video + audio is also okej :))... Also is there any PCI tv capture cards which can take digital?

components are the best and MUST be used with hdtv

its not dvi, how does hdmi look?

I read the manual for my STB, it does support a 10-pin mini-din connector to component... But I cant find one of those cables, anyone know where I can get one?

edit: not it is not hdmi, it is just a thin optical cable... Is there a video input card which will take component RGB?

digital wires used in home theater:

Audio:

Digital Coaxial

Optical

Video:

DVI

Both:

HDMI

anything else is either a proprietary cable or, in rare cases, a firewire cable.
