I recently purchased a Yamaha RDX650 applifier which upconverts a composite signal into s-video. At present i am using my x-box with an s-video lead straight into the front on my Tosh RPTV. There is no benefit therefore by connecting the x-box to the amplifier (obviously apart from the sound) My recorder is connected by component to my TV and i have my Humax freeview boxplugged into the recorder through its RGB connection. Now i know that the recorder will output the Humax signal through the component leads - so i assume the recorder is converting the RGB signal to component. However if i connect the x-box into the front s-video connection on the recorder and select it will that also be able to be pushed through the component output to the TV.
