Onkyo TX-NR414 Component to HDMI

Hi

I'm about to buy a shiny new AV receiver and the above Onkyo seems to be in my price range. What I'm having difficulty finding out (and even reading the manual of it was a touch confusing) is will the 414 turn a component input (from my ageing 20gb xbox 360!) into an HDMI output, so I can run everything (Tivo/blu ray and xbox) from the same HDMI output. I've had a look around here but haven't been able to find a definite answer.

If this one won't, what is a good alternative? that is also controllable via my android phone and has component inputs

Cheers.

You are looking for a receiver with upconversion so if you see that listed you will be fine. The 414 does not do upconversion (it is towards the back of the manual about video configurations). Hence it will not convert component to HDMI.
I believe the denon 1713 has upconversion so that could be an option. What speakers do you have?

The Denon AVR1713 has no video processing capabilities. I think the cheapest receiver to have such an ability to be the Onkyo TXNR515? The Denon AVR2113 also has video conversion and scaling capabilities and would be a better option than the TXNR515 in my opinion even though it is £30 more.

Cheers for the advice

I've got some Roth Oli 3 floorstanders at the moment, will probably branch out into some separates soon. I'll check out those receivers, cheers
