Looking for a sub $400ish receiver that has at least3 component inputs. No HDMI necessary.. I am willing to buy refurb or used.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should be looking for? It's in an older install and I do not want to use a component video switcher. Something newer with in-room audio calibration is great, but I honestly do not mind buying something that was top of the line 6-7 years back. It's for a 5.1 setup. I just need some ideas. Thanks folks!

If you go back 4-5 years, almost any AVR will have 3 component video inputs, even those with HDMI. On the other hand, I don't know of any in that price range from the last 2-3 years that do. I just recently picked up a used Onkyo TX-NR905 in the Classified section here for right at $400... if you can come across something like that you would have the benefit of the component inputs/output you need, a full suite of HDMI, decoding of losless/uncompressed audio over HDMI, solid room-eq, and a beast of an amp.

It shouldn't be a problem with equipment 4 years or older, but one thing to watch out for is that most modern AV receivers don't support using the onscreen display with a TV connected using composite video. Depending on the model this can make setting up or even using the receiver difficult or impossible.

If you think your AVR is defective, refer to the Owner's manual and reset the microprocessor a few times in a row.
