I have done extensive reading here over the last few weeks and I have been unable to find enough info on the video features of lower-middle-range AVRs. There is tons of info on audio quality but SQ is secondary to VQ in my case.Components:
Samsung LN52A650 (which will not accept 480p over HDMI).
Tivo HD (HDMI)
Macbook Pro (HDMI video, analog audio)
Wii (component)My reqs:
3 HDMI inputs
1080p upscaling (including from analog inputs)
single cable connectivity to TV (HDMI)
no sparks, lines, or bars in the converted video signalsProspects so far:
Harman Kardon AVR-254
Can anyone attest to the video quality of these, or any any other that I have not seen? I would include Marantz in the list but all the ones in my price range seem to only have 2 HDMI inputs. I did not include the Onkyo 606 because that is the one AVR that did have lots of info on video quality and it appears to be quite bad.
I do not mind going refurb to get a higher end model as long as its warranted if that is the way I need to go.
And now the famous AVS cliché: Any advice from the pros?
