That is going to depend on what video processing is in your TV vs. the other components in your system. TVs generally don't have very good video processing compared to other components. I'd run all HDMI into the receiver. From there you can either set the receiver's "source" to either pass the video to the TV for processing or have the receiver do it. 1080p will be passed directly to the TV if the TV is a true 1080p set. All other resolutions will be processed by the AVR and sent to the TV as 1080p. The receiver will process the HDMI audio stream and send it to the speakers. Some sources, like a blu-ray player, will have menu options to disable processing. Try it both ways to see what setting gives you the best picture. It may be that your disc player and AVR have the same processing solution.
