Hi, these forums normally sort out my problems. I think I have read somewhere that "newer" amps now can swicth and "upgrade" video, i.e. say take in a SVHS signal and output component. The reason that I am asking is that I only want to have one cable to my projector, i.e. spend my money on one high-qaulity cable. I have DVD, which is component, which should ideally go directly to the projector and miss out the amp altogether. I would perfer not to do this for the reason mentioned above. So I have DVD, Component, Sky+ with SVHS and XBOX with SVHS. Is there and an AMP or similar device which will switch all thes signals and output in component. I suppose I should expect no image improvement with taking SVHS to Component, but will I get any loss? Will I get any loss by switching the component? thx PS. I suppose a daft question, but do people sell multicore cables, i.e. SVHS & Component?
