    Can the component output of the Denon AVR 3805 but inputted into a video scaler, so that all the inputs on the receiver can be used through the scaler? Or do all connections need to go through the scaler directly?

    I know the receiver already has a video up-conversion, but would this effect the final picture, if a scaler is used between the receiver and display?

    Thanks

    Most scalers, if not all, have multiple inputs so there is no need to go through the receiver anyway as the scaler will do the source switching.

    As MarkE19 says if you have the ability to Input the signals directly to the scaler its best to do so - especially so if your contemplating using the video 'up-conversion' features found in the Denon AV Receiver; this is a great 'convenience' feature for those with a mixture of video sources where some sources (Composite and S-Video) are used infrequently and the convenience of having one wire and one less remote in the switching path is a plus point but not the best way to get a decent signal into a scaler/video processor.

    The better the input signal the more chance the video processor has of optimising the video signal.

    Best regards

    Joe
