    I have a problem which i hope someone may have an answer to. I have the above mentioned Pioneer receiver with DVD and freeview (Netgem) connected via component inputs. the Pioneer is outputting via component to a projector. The Pioneer fails to output my Xbox when it is connected via S-Video. I am using the official Microsoft Advanced AV Pack with supplied s-video lead. It will work if i disconnect Pio's component-out leads and instead use an s-video as the video-out to the projector...but thats a cludge i dont want to carry out each time. The manual suggests that it should work with an s-video signal...

    anyone got any ideas

    cheers
    Dave

    It would surprise me if it did actually do what you're hoping it will do. Not many receivers will actually convert a signal - normally they will just pass it on, much like what you are describing when you change over your wires.

    The updated AX5ai will upconvert but not the AX5i. You either need to run 2 leads to your PJ or get a component AV kit for the Xbox. Pain in the arse I know.

    Great amp though!
