    Does anyone know if the AV8 is capable of accepting a 720p high def signal into the component input of the unit. Then passing the signal through the component output of the unit into a high def screen without problems? Sorry I don't really understand all the technical stuff to well:(

    I asked a similar question about the AVR300 a while back and the answer was positive: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=257238

    Hopefully, you will get a response from one of the AV8 owners confirming it will also pass through 720p.

    EDIT:
    Just checking the AV8 manual, it says:

    The high quality component video inputs have sufficient bandwidth for
    line-doubled NTSC (525/60) or PAL (625/50) video and US HDTV
    video signals. However, when used with such signals the OSD is not
    overlaid on the picture but is output at standard interlaced NTSC or
    PAL (525 or 625 line) rate on a solid background.


    The same as the AVR300, so I'd reckon you are safe.

    Cheers

    To concur with "LCF Rules", the answer is yes. Obviously (!) HDMI equiped AV8+/AV9 models can carry High Def video via HDMI as well.
