I've had my Denon AVR-2807 for a number of years now (since shortly after it was released), thanks to guidance from this board. I wouldn't be looking for a new receiver except for the fact that my video (HDMI or Component Video to my 1080i Sony TV) receiver has started dropping out more and more. At first I thought it was the cable, but now I'm pretty well convinced that it is not. I'd like to replace it with something that will allow me to update my other components at a future date, so I'm not looking to simply match the units I have now. I presently only have a 1080i TV, but eventually would like to get 1080p (I doubt I'll get 3D, but who knows).
My current components are:
TV - Sony TV (KF-50WE610)
CD/DVD changer - Sony DVD (DVP-NC665P)
TiVo Series 3 (TCD-648250B)
Infinity bookshelf front & center speakers. Polk bookshelf rear. Velodyne 12" subwoofer
PS3, Tivo, and Wii are connected to my gigabit LAN, including an Ubuntu Server running TwonkeyMedia server and Slim Server, and a Mac running NullRiver Media Server.
I'm looking at this Pioneer unit (VSX-1020K) or the Denon 791 at this point. I'm really, really confused. I need to move quickly as the TV is pretty much unusable at present. I've also found very little information on just what the ethernet connectivity of this unit is useful for.
Please help!! Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
