Composite (yellow plug) into receiver; will HDMI out still work?

Hi all,

Quick Question:

I'm setting up an A/V receiver and my wife has an older component she still wants available. The older component has only composite out (yellow plug). If I plug this into the receiver can I still use the HDMI out or will I have to use the composite out (yellow video out)?

The reason I'm asking and not just experimenting is that the cables are going through a wall and asking the smart guys here will save me a little time. I have no problems running the composite cable through the wall, like I said I just want to save the hassle of experimenting w/ 15 ft. of cable through the wall.

Thanks in advance

That will depend on the make/model of AVR as generally lower level models cannot convert analog --> HDMI.

Thanks Smoothie. That makes sense to me especially because I have a lower end model. I will just run the composite cable then.

Thanks again

Check your AVR manual. It should tell you whether the receiver transcodes analog to HDMI.

if you posted the make and model of your AVR you'd get your question answered properly.
