I have also many of the local HIFI shops and no one was could answer the questions. If anyone with the 863 has tried it or can try it for me I would be greatly appreciated.
I have the 861 and YES it does automatically choose the source in order of HDMI, Component, S-Vid then Composite, or something to that affect, and same goes for audio. I have my DVD player plugged into "DVD" via HDMI (with audio) and the Xbox 360 hooked up to "DVD" via component and digital audio.
Same with my DTV - S-Vid to the "DTV" input and analog sound, but also my Xbox 1 in the "DTV" input via component and digital sound. It auto tunes the source in the order described above.
ALSO you can reassign which vid inputs go with with digital sound inputs. Very versitile unit.
Hope that was clear...
