    Hi all,
    I have what may sound like a silly question.... but what are the advantages of connecting Video equipment (TV, DVD, VCR etc ..) to an AV amp ? I can understand connecting the audio stuff.

    Surley connecting direct from source eg DVD (via RGB Scart or Component video ) to the TV is more desirable.

    Thx.

    Attaching the video signals to your AV amp / reciever allows the Amp to switch between various sources at the same time as switching the audio.

    Yes you're right ... you will get the best picture going direct ... but the AV amp allows you to have more sources than you have inputs to your TV ... especially when you have a plasma or similar with only a single input.
