    Hi all

    In the process of building a home cinema more or less from scratch.

    1st of all i need an a receiver with component video switching, at least 4 video inputs and obviously as many as possible of the newest sound formats would be nice too.

    lookin between denon 1905, pioneer 814, sony 697 and yamaha 450 but i have

    1. DVD - Digital Audio / Component
    2. Sky+ - Digital Audio / SVHS (component when hdtv comes out)
    3. PS2 - Digital Audio / SVHS
    4. Satellite Reciever - Digital Audio / SVHS (component when hdtv comes out)

    how the hell do i connect em all?

    any recommendations greatly appreciated..

    cheers :thumbsup:

    ps, does any know of any websites that compare recievers? (ie, inputs, outputs, sound, connections etc)

    If you can push the budget a little bit you can afford video upscaling. Then you can plug the DVD in to the amp with componant. The other 3 with SVHS and the amp will output it all through the componant to your TV etc.

    This one has a few reviews on it and some comparisons between amps.

    interesting, im fairly new to this and upscaling is definalty new tnew to me.

    it seem the more i dig the deeper i get, even to the point of know every sodding model available, including number of connections and types techology used etc.

    even got a bloody excel spreadsheet on the go now!

    'all' i want is a amp/reciever with 4 video inputs and 4 digital audio inputs, but it seems 3 is the limit in the cheaper end of the spectrum.

    really trying not to go silly and spend over the odd...

    maybe thinking of an older model now like yamaha 640 maybe?
