I see that the lower model rx-v line do not offer "HDMIUpscaling" Does this mean that non-hdmi source video will not be put onto the hdmi cable to my screen or that it wont get upscaled when it is?

I can only run hdmi to the set because its built into a wall. Is HDMI upscaling a requirement to get all video to the set over the single hdmi cable going to it?

Thanks,
-R.

No, scaling is not a requirement, but A-D conversion is. You'll need to check specifics on each AVR to see if it can convert A-D. Worst case you'll need to check the manuals for the video pathway charts.

That said, the A-D conversion quality on entry and mid-level AVRs is marginal at best. It may be more cost-effective to look at replacing the source devices that rely on analog video output.

Its video game consoles. My PS2 and Wii. Not much chance there.

Thanks for the info. You may have just saved me a few hundred dollars!
