Pixelation Caused By Conponent Cables?

I searched and didn't see this. I have a plasma 720P 50 Inch Samsung HDTV. My Dish Network box is the 722k VIP dual tuner DVR. The Dish box is hooked up via component cables and running 720p on HD channels. I notice like on WWE Raw when a wrester comes out and the lights, titan tron (big sreen) is going off behind them is HORRIBLE. Bad pixelation and then perfect when not shooting that. I have a Sony Blu Ray player running HDMI, and 1080i (the player auto discovered this) and Blu Rays are PERFECT and crystal clear, no pixels or noise so my tv is fine. Would going to HDMI on my Dish box fix this? Thanks. :D

Not a fault of the component cable but rather a low signal strength or the originating broadcast is weak. Contact Dish about that. A Dish realignment may be in order.

Did you mention before that it is best to use component over HDMI for satellite connection? Thanks;)
