After 18 months of ownership my DAV-SC8 has died. No fault of the unit, a power surge killed it (along with an ADSL router and Wireless AP). If I'm honest I was never really all that impressed by it and it did have a tendancy to "crash" a fair bit. So I don't really want to replace it with the same model or even another all-in-one. The house insurance should give me £650 (orig purchase price) to replace it, so what would be a good AV receiver and DVD player/recorder for the money. I'll be looking at utilising the speakers and sub from the SC8 until I can afford to replace them. The single most important feature for the receiver is that it must be able to switch video sources. Anything that makes changing between Sky/DVD/PS2 difficult is going to get me killed by the wife.
