Hi all, I'm looking to put together a surround setup at home with the following video sources: Video player, Toshiba DVD player, Sky+ The TV would probably a Hitachi 42PD7200 or Panasonic TH42PV500 and the AV receiver I've been looking at is the Denon AVR-1705. My question is: I want to get the best possible picture quality out of each video source but want to minimise the number of connections from the receiver to my Plasma TV. The idea being that the plasma sits on its own on one wall and the sources and receiver... etc sit on a shelf to the side of the room. From looking at the manual for the AVR-1705 I get the impression that: - For the DVD player to use "component" I would need to connect the receiver with the TV using component. - My video (which has scart and composite connections) would necessitate another cable to the TV (most likely composite). - Sky+ (which has scart and S-video) would also necessitate an S-video cable (assuming that S-video is better than composite). Then there's audio to the TV as well from the receiver (so that I could use the built-in speakers of the TV if required). That means 4 seperate cables running to the TV. Not very pretty when the TV is sitting on the wall on it's own. And to cap it all the wall I want to mount the Plasma on is a solid brick wall making cable management inside the wall impossible. Is there a smarter way to do what I'm trying to do? Or does everyone just have their receiver directly under their TV? I've also looked at the AVR-1905 manual which says that it does up-conversion from composite to S-video which would decrease the cabling by one. Any ideas?
