Audio Reciever video up conversion

by e207822 / May 21, 2006 11:54 AM PDT

I currently have direct TV w/tivo and the best connection I can make to my tv is s-video. Will I see any improved video quality if I get an audio receiver that up converts to component. I am assuming that my TV (Sony Trinitron HDTV 34" widescreen)does a pretty good job on its own. My tv has Component and HDMI inputs but I need to cut down a few trees before I would bother to upgrade to the HD receiver from direct tv.

if you're looking for a cheap way of upgrading the box, get one on ebay and then upgrade the service.

And get the direct t.v. hi-def box, Also If your amp does not have h.d.m.i. switching, Then run h.d.m.i. straight from box to t.v. then run optical audio from box to amp if dont have an amp then h.d.m.i. will work fine for t.v. sound Once you feed your Sony a hi-def signal you will be blown away with a movie theater picture good luck and post back stewart

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
