I think that the front optical connector is already assigned to V AUX, the front panel input, and can't be changed, so you don't need to assign it yourself.

I think the 1906 should be able to switch HD Component signals, so you should be able to connect Video cables from all your equipment also to the 1906 and let the 1906 switch it all.

I'm another novice to the AVR-1906. Just setup the Denon AVR-1906 at home but have to play around with it.

I have all my video signals connected to the plasma instead of connecting it to the avr-1906. I did however connect AV4 on the plasma to the amp, so I can use the screen setup display. Please clear up something for me.

Why connect through the amp when you can connect directly to the source (plasma or monitor)? Will connecting component - amp - plasma instead of component - plasma cause lose of pq?

Don't know if it matters but the plasma is a HD?

In theory you could get a small loss of PQ, but you're the best person to be able to judge that - try it for yourself.

The benefit is that you only need to use one remote to switch between sources, the 1906 one. Connect the component output of the Receiver to the Plasma component in and leave the Plasma on that input.

The Denon may be better at converting Composite or S-Vid to component than your plasma, but it won't handle RGB so if you have RGB SCART stuff, you may be better off plugging those directly into the Plasma.
