    I've got a Fuji 4242 and currently I've got all these separate inputs going up the the screen, I've tried to locate an appropriate TV Tuner/ Multimedia box without success (as I'm not a big home cinema buff), and so it seems my only option is a AV receiver.
    forgive me if I'm completely wrong on how this all works, but it would seem that I'd plug everything(VCR /DVD/Satellite box) to the av receiver, and then a single component video/ s-video/RGB input to the screen. Is that correct?

    My second question, is what would be reasonable AV reciever (500-800) (possibily with an analogue TV tuner built in)

    AS for the second question, I can't say but I have recently acquired a Yamaha DSP AX620 for £175 second hand (excellent condition though) I have loads of components attached but simply put, feed a composite video in and get a composite video out, put S-VHS in and get S-VHS out etc. It has component video in/out too. What it can't do is convert say a comp in to S VHS out as each circuit is seperate. I like it myself although some people say it's lacking in stereo music quality but I have found it to my liking. I feed the a/v out from VCR2 upstairs via screen network cable so I can watch and listen to analogue sources on my WinTV equipped PC and also do audio/video capture too. If you like I can scan the rear connector diagram for you as it typically represents a lot of decent AV amps.

    Most amps in the £800 pound region will do this but i dont know of any with an analogue TV tuner, Buy a freeveiw STB fo £100 and spend £700 on the amp(av receiver) you eill need to get some speakers too as having a high end amp and using it just for video is daft:nono: Have you seen the Quintro as this may be a cheaper solution for you. May i suggest you look here and perhaps here and definatley here and also here But after all that i think you will find this will do exactly what you are looking for. Wont sound any where near as good though!!!!!!! I suggest you go and have a demo of one of those receivers and the see if they would add any thing to youyr veiwing pleasure!:D I'm sure they will

    If it's just video formats, connections, conversions and tuning you;re worried about (i.e. npo need for surround sound processing etc.) take a look at www.lektropacks.co.uk ... might be worth a look even if you are considering surround sound for their format converters, tuners, etc. etc.
