The trick is getting video upscaling from composite to HDMI at this pricepoint.
You might look at used "high end" models from a generation or two back....
1. If room size is limited, better to have a 5.1 well set-up than a 7.1 poorly done.
2. 6.1 is not recommended.
3. Game upscaling is going to be problematic even with ext. video processors, there is some discussion in the vp forum about games. Keep your expectations well on the ground.
4. Legacy inputs are getting rare in lower models.
