    ok this may be daft but

    if I input a device via s-video to the Denon can it output the signal via the component output to a display?

    I don't think so.......I think that you will need the 3803 for that.

    Just thought I'd check the manual to confirm;

    'This unit's S-jacks (input and output) and video pin jacks (input and output) have independent circuit structures, so that video signals input from the S-jacks are only output from the S-jack outputs and video signals input from the pin jacks are only output from the pin jack outputs.'

    That'll definately be a 'no' then!

    would the 3805 convert the svhs signal to component internally ?

    if so does that make it worth the extra money?

    Yes the 3805 does do this, but as far as it being worth the extra money, I guess that's up to you really. If you want the upconversion but don't want to pay that much, you could always pick up a 3803 as that does the conversion also.

    I was considering upgrading my 3802, but have decided to wait a while and put the money towards a new DVD player and a PJ instead.

    I couldn't find the 3803 anywhere only the 3805

    any idea where I could get one from and ball park cost?

    would the internally converted svhs signals to component produce a significantly better image than just a direct svhs output?

    edit

    ignore that I have found it for 640 so it is 200 more

    There are no improvements when upconverting, its just down to convienience of only having one output to your display..
