    Why do amps/receivers have inputs for a video signal? For instance, my Pio VSX-D912 has yellow sockets as well as reds and whites. I take it that the yellow would be for a composite video signal but why the need to route a video signal through your amp? Am I being stupid or am I missing the point somewhere?

    The S-VHS inputs are also there and do have their uses. Mrs Tons permits the use of a limited number of Games consoles at any one time- normally two. Now as my telly only has one S-Vid input, the amp acts as a switch for the two consoles. Further to this, when Mrs Tons is away, addtional consoles can be bought into play- normally using the front set of inputs to save a tortuous journey down the back.
