I have a question which I've not yet been able to answer reading through the thread.... what flexibility is there in assigning video inputs.
That is, even through there are "lables" on the HDMI, component, composite/S-video inputs for certain things like "DVD", "HDP", "VCR", etc - what level of flexiblity is really provided.
I know (believe?) you can change the name displayed on the received, but what I'm asking is if I use an HDMI port labled "DVD", can I then use a Composite video input labled "DVD" for another input source? I'm trying to understand the actual flexibility here for inputs to determine if the 2309 would work for me, or if I'd be pushed up into the 2809.
My input sources would be
- DirecTV HD DVR (HDMI)
- PS3 (HDMI)
- upscaling DVD player (to later become a dedicated BluRay player) (HDMI)
- Wii (Component)
- future spot for an AppleTV or similar streaming media device (likely HDMI, but could be component)
- want to save a composite or potentially component for a video camera
- if there was an extra S-Video/Composite still avail I might use it for something else, but not critical
