upconverting video sources with av receiver

by dirtsurf / October 16, 2005 9:54 AM PDT

If an av receiver does not upconvert video inputs, will it just convert analog sources to digital so that I do not have to change inputs on the tv.

well I think I figured out that you need to upconvert the composite video input to get it to go thru the component video output. I do not have a particular unit in mind but am trying to figure out the best way to keep from having to switch the video input on my tv and the audio input on my av receiver every time I switch between component and composite video sources. Now I an thinking of getting one of those harmony or logitech remotes that seem to take care of that. Do you think that is best?

if your tv has an hdmi input a good receiver just came out by JVC that upconverts for you, the rx-d402($450) or rx-d702($800). it is one of the few receivers i have researched that do this and for under a grand. the main difference i see in the receivers is that the 702 provides 150 watts per channel while 402 is out 110. one last thing that i almost forgot, both receivers have 2 hdmi inputs and one output, so you could hook up two hi-def items.

if you're the only one using it, i'd recommend getting a reciever that upconverts and running everything into the receiver first (both video and audio). then you'll probably know how to run your reciever and everything else thats needed.

if you have other people using it...especially someone that is scared even to use a computer mouse, then get a harmoney remote and hook it up however you want.

harmoneys are very easy to program, most keys are raised so you can feel it unlike the stupid sony's, and its very easy to use.
