Hi, I'm about to buy an AV receiver and would like some help choosing. I have about $250 to spend and don't need (or expect) anything fancy. I would be using it almost exclusively for home theater. I have a Panny 46G10 plasma, LG blu ray player, Tivo, and an old VCR. I'm in a fairly small room, about 15 x 20.
So, which brands/models in my price range handle video & HDMI switching best?
Or, is my price range too low? is there some significant feature I'd be missing or significant difference in video quality in higher priced models? I've spent a wad already on the stuff that I have--I don't want to undermine the whole operation by skimping on the wrong receiver.
If I wait, I can spend a bit more (though, of course, I don't want to buy more than I really need).
Thanks for your help.
