I use the bendable kind, and I don't think I have any issues with them. I don't remember where I have them placed anymore. I have one for my TV input and I think I have them for all the ports on the receiver and blu ray player, too.
Today I was experimenting with different settings on my V667 while trying to get Playstation 1 games (specifically Final Fantasy VII played on a PS2 Slim over component cables) to display. Every time in the past when I would load up PS1 games, the initial Playstation screen would show, but when the game loaded, I only got a green screen, despite the audio playing fine. I know the issue is because the PS1 games I've tried are output in 240p. Today I learned that if I enable Video Processing on the receiver, I can play those games on my TV. I have processing settings set to "Through" for aspect and resolution set to "Auto". The AVR information says it's converting 240p to 1080p. The picture doens't look as amazing as some of scalers I've seen sample images of, but it's better than the single yellow composite cable.
I also reconfirmed what I previously wasn't able to reproduce, and that is with processing enabled (and it must only be when the AVR is processing video - I think certain signals do not get processed) the on-screen volume does not show up when the volume is changed.
