I'm just recently in the market for a cheap (<$400) receiver for my family room. I have an older Xbox that predates their support for HDMI; so I've only got VGA + stereo audio out from it. I browsed a few manufacturer's sites and searched AVS Forum for some suggestions, but haven't had any luck... Can anyone point me at any receivers (if they exist) that support VGA/Stereo audio in?
Currently my Samsung LN52A650 TV does support this input directly, but having just mounted the TV over my fireplace, I now require that the sole input from the TV come via HDMI from the receiver.
I am aware there are some pricey (~$150) VGA/Stereo to HDMI converters, but at that price I'd be better off just buying a new Xbox that supports HDMI natively.
Thanks in advance!
