I'm currently running a Denon 4800 (old guy). I love it and want to stick with Denon, but I'm realizing that I need some HDMI inputs.
I know the 3808ci does analog to digital conversion, but I only hear this in reference to upconverting to 1080p. My tv is 720p. Does this matter? Can I run my Xbox360 with component to the receiver and then HDMI out to the TV?
Between the 3808ci and the 4308ci, I will hardwire it to my network, so I don't need wireless. I don't need HD radio. No plans for utilizing video in a second zone. The only thing that is pulling my ear to the 4308ci is the AL24 processing on all 8 channels vs. the 2 with the 3808ci. My room is pretty big with high ceilings, but the watching area is relatively small. Also, I'm likely to only use 5.1 channels due to the wife not digging more speakers. Anyone able to say the upgraded AL24 processing is worth it?
