You got this AV receiver for a song? Otherwise I would skip this project (not worth the effort).
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?
