JohnAV--again thanks for the info, and the link.
I have a question about the upconversion/scaling.
I have the Oppo 983. So when I have that connected into this receiver, is there some setting that I turn on or off to make it so that the signal sent by the Oppo is not given any processing, and are there ways to add processing to the signal if I want to. This is one aspect of these receivers that offer upconversion, etc. etc. that I have never understood very well. Any help in understanding this would be greatly appreciated.
I really want to understand the various options one has regarding the various signals that you send via hdmi including my hd cablebox. I have 4 components to connect--cable box, HD DVD player, Panasonic bd-30 bd player, and the Oppo 983 all via hdmi.
