STRDA1200ES component upscaling?? Help!!


Standard Member
got this yesterday and have a component question.

At present i don't have a blueray/hd player and use my x360 for dvds via VGA for 1080i, but I do have a new decent Sony DVD player with component.

I see from the manual that the STRDA1200ES accepts component in to connect to my Panny 42X60 plasma.

My questions are:

1) I have component out from DVD to the amp. How best to connect amp to TV (the audio is fed into amp by coaxial cable)?

2) once DVD is fed into TV via amp, can the amp upscale the image to 1080i??

3) Will the image likely be better or worse that xbox via VGA??

This amp will not upscale.

If I were you, I would just direct connect the component cable from DVD player to the screen and then compare the PQ with the 360 and see which you prefer.
