Penngray - If you are using that advanced of a setup, hopefully you are not using a receiver and are using much better equipment. But if you are using a receiver, I would hope that you would want the best picture quality from each soruce and HDMI switching does not allow for that. I might be 1%, but that is out of only 5% who own an HDTV and buy a receiver. (my opinionated math of course).
Kuddos, I like that arguement
1% of 5%, seriously! you are definitely right there!
Honestly though, I have matrix switches and I have AVRs. I run 720p and 1080i throughout my house over component video, my one XBOX actually does 1080p over component video. I have several HDMI devices that I connect back to my component video matrix solution using an HDFury. I also have a PS3 local in my HT room (Panny AE900U). I have done 720p from my system, 1080i from my system and 1080p locally from the PS3 and of course there is a difference but its honestly not meaningful enough for me to ever consider wanting to run any source directly to any of my TVs. Its not worth it because the difference is again a "splitting hairs" difference that few will ever care about and Im very happy I do not think its much.
btw, I can not tell the difference with the following
PS3 -> JVC 61" 1080p vs PS3 -> V663 -> JVC 61" 1080P
In the end J6P will never care about what you are describing.
I guess what Im saying is that the those seeking the extreme level of PQ just have to pay extreme amounts of money to get their needs satisfied.
You even pointed out the 5% so J6P doesnt even have HD yet and so just having PS3 -> V663 -> HD TV is a dream come true.
I know that my house gets rave reviews from family and friends because I have HD throughout the house even a 50" plasma pool side (I send HD too it over cat5e !!) That HD is still component video and the picture is stunning for me, my family and ANYONE that visits.
