    Pioneer announced that they will soon release two new AV receivers which, if I understand correctly, are capable of upconverting any (analogue too!) to HDMI:

    Apparently they also feature 2 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out.

    The Denon AVC-A11XV also is going to have this ability - but will sport three HDMI inputs - albeit at a slightly more expensive cost.

    On a related issue does anyone know if any of these machines will be able to take a high def signal from HDMI/DVI or Component and down-convert it to standard resolution?

    I just noticed the Philips DFR9000 class D AV receiver which does HDMI switching (two in - one out) has additional two component inputs and is priced at some € 700. It apparently also does full upscaling to 1080i.

    Sounds like a very interesting product for such a low price!
