Being sick and tired of Yes countless DVDs, I vote for Gentle Giant, although have to admit that Yes Symphonic is one of their best.

Shorter but absolutely amazing... GG on the Box!!!
Yes are old men now, they know how to play, but come on... How many times the members of Gentle Giant swap instruments during the 50 minutes concert? And they play all the stuff PERFECTLY!!!
Now, go and try to ask Rick Wakeman to play some flute...

Giant on the Box by far.  A great band caught in their prime !

Special mention to Yes' Symphonic live rendition of 'The Gates of Delirium'.

Giant on the box wins this poll for me, but the Yes-DVD comes very close!

I chose Giant On The Box..  Wonderful to have, a must for all Proggers!
 
Although I do like that particular Yes DVD too, also getting fed up with the Yes DVDs coming out, and Montreux 2003 will be with me in the next few days (I know.. LOL)
