    Hi,

    Sorry if this has been covered before. I'm quite new to AV Recievers and I'm just wondering why I would want to plug a DVD player into the AV Reciever and then into the TV. I.e. why not just plug the DVD player straight into the TV?

    I'm sure this is a silly question, but I don't know the answer!

    Thanks

    Oliver

    Depending on the reciever it could upscale the picture for you and if i am not mistaken the video channell carries a certain amount of info for the surround sound tracks. I could be wrong on the second as i am relativeley new to home cinema myself.

    Its a conevience thing mainly. Its means the AV reciever becomes the hub of all your entertainment needs. So when you switch on to DVD its swicthes video and audio so no need messing for remote for TV.

    As Rob said depending on amp is could upscale but its unlikely you would see any improvement in PQ. Cerainly not with low end amps.

    No audio is carried by component.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm looking to start low end at the moment, so I don't think I'll need the video in/out.

    I want to spend about £300 on a speaker package, amp and interconnects. I don't suppose anybody has any recommendations?

    Thanks again

    Oliver

    You could do worse than check out the clearance lines on the richer sounds website, you could put together a decent set up for around £300.

    Hope it helps mate.
