Considering purchasing the AVR-590. Please clarify.
I have a 7 year old Mitsubishi HDTV that has only one HD component input. Until now I haven't needed additional HD inputs but now I'd like to connect my Comcast HD cable box & a blu-ray player to the AVR-590 via it's 2 component inputs & pass 1080i on to my HDTVs only 1080i component input. The Comcast receiver & blu-ray player both have built-in upconverters for SD to 1080 video so I presume the AVR-590 doesn't do any other up-converting; just a past through, right?
So, I'd use both of the AVR-590s component inputs, then use the component output to my Mitsubishi?
This receiver is priced in the mid-300s. Any other brands that offer similar quality?
