your regular dvd player is not outputting an hd signal unless it is an upconverting which more than likely will not upconvert over component. PS3 will output hd so you should be ok there ,but if you dont have hd cable box your not gonna get hd from that. you also need to see what resolutions are supported over component to that pj. any reason youre not using hdmi?
I have Denon 3805. It does not have HDMI.
So really, am i losing HD source because of HDMI?
upconvert dvd player needs HDMI to get hd source right? How about PS3?
What is the best way without having to change out the receiver?
I have the HD65 and a Denon 3805. I run my HDMI directly from my directTV box and my upconverting DVD player to a $15 switcher (parts express, I think, 2 years old), then one HDMI (monoprice, 30 feet, low $$) from the switcher to the HD65.
DVD player is outputting 1080p, Directtv box outputting 720p or 1080i, or maybe it's output varies depending on the channel - can't remember what I settled on.
You can't get HD from most sources if you are using component.
Feel free to PM me for more questions about the 3805. I'm no expert, but I like mine alot and have had it for 5 years now.
