I found that only the HDMI passed through the HDMI out whereas component inputs still required a component out and did not pass through the HDMI out.
I am liking at returning the receiver now in favour of one that will convert all of the inputs through HDMI. Is there something specifically I should be looking for in a receivers description to show that it has this function?
Any recommendations for receivers in the $300-$350 range that could handle this would be great!
Where are you located? If you live near a Fry's Electronics they have the Denon e400 7.1 receiver on sale for $299, normally $599.
You can actually but it online too if you don't live near a Fry's store. Sale ends Thursday but they usually run out of online stock before then. You should buy it today while in stock if seriously interested it returning your Yamaha.
This receiver only has one component video input so if you need more than that look for a different receiver, perhaps the Denon 2312.

Be careful as well the new Denon line, i believe, only allows for one component input so if you have more than that you may want to look at one of the older models. But the Denon brands are great and that is what I install for all my customers.
again if you only have one component input then I would go with the e400 they are great receivers.
Even if I get a 1080p projector I wonder if I should look to a receiver with dual outputs. Thanks
I think I have actually narrowed my choice down to the Denon AVR E400 & the Denon 2113.
I have tried to go back and forth between the Owner's Threads that are here on AVS and so far the only major discernible difference I see is that the 2113 has the MultEQ XT vs the MultEQ.
Any opinion between these two?
After doing a little looking I've put less emphasis on the two outputs as I found I can use an HDMI splitter when I get the projector hooked up.
plus you get a 3 year warranty on new 2113's. 2 year on new e400s.
