I built my home theater 8 years ago and none of the equipment has HDMI inputs so I was running all component. I just switched from cable to dish and their box only has hdmi and composite inputs. My Onkyo receiver can't make the conversion from one format to another.

Instead of downgrading everything to composite, my plan was to replace the receiver now and get an HDMI adaptor for my projector so that it's all HDMI. However, I just learned that it was just a limitation of the receiver and that some can make this conversion.

Will any of the lower end models I am looking at be able to make the conversion so that I can run a mix of different formats so I don't need to get the adaptor or new projector at this time?

Harmon Kardon AVR 700, Yamaha RX-V373BL or Denon 1513

Hopefully I made sense.

AVRs are prohibited from making an HDMI ---> component/analog conversion, rather you would need to use a 3rd party device such as ---> http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011410&p_id=8125&seq=1&format=2

Also note that the lowest Denon model that will do component/analog ---> HDMI would be the 1913.
