Yamaha RX-V757 and HDMI Conversion

by scarruth67 / September 2, 2011 8:46 PM PDT

I am in the market for a Home Theater Receiver. I have recently discovered a floor model at a local vendor that is a really good price. Tooling around the internet, I find that this was quite an excellent unit in its day 6 years ago. I am wondering if this receiver will work well with HDMI inputs and outputs to a 1080P HD TV. The only true HD input I will have is a cable TV feed. DVD has HDMI output, but is not blue ray. The Yamaha has S Video ins and outs. Can I use a HDMI converter and achive quality picture?

How long has this been a floor model running 24x7?
HDMI converter for what? The Yamaha doesn't have HDMI. A HDMI converter doesn't give you HD -- simply connects component or DVI or whatever to HDMI. Do you already have the DVD player connected to the HDTV via HDMI? The Yamaha will not give you a better picture. If I misunderstood you post let me know

Skip it, buy a newer receiver (n/t)

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?
