Denon AVR-1909 analog to digital conversion

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay. I am totally confused. I haven't bought any new av equipment in about 20 yrs so please bare with me.

I just purchased a Panasonic TH-C50HD18 plasma tv which I want to hang on the wall in my family room.

I also just purchased a Denon AVR-1909.

I want all my older, analog components (dvd, vcr, satellite receiver) in a closet in a back room connected to the 1909 and only run one hdmi cable to the panny in a different room.

I am now being told that the 1909 doesn't do analog to digital conversion so I'll still have to run component cables from the dvd, vcr,satellite to the tv.

Is this true with the 1909. When I look at the spec sheet it says "Analog-to-Digital Conversion - Bit Depth/Sampling Rate 24/96".

Which model Denon will let me accomplish my goal of connecting everything to the receiver and only using one hdmi cable to view video from all my sources?

Thanks in advance for any advice

That is not true, you can connect component in and everything will go out HDMI.

Thanks for the quick response.

I thought I was correct. I think the installer just wants me to buy their equipment.

I won't be using them to install.

Thanks Again

I would never do one cable, thus HDMI only to any display. Every body I know that has done that has regreted it given some time with their system. If that is what the installer is hinting at, they are right on the money in my opinion.

If its not an in-wall install etc, I see no reason for extra cables until needed.

Yes for any in-wall custom install I would run several Cat6 cables along with the HDMI cable just for future proofing.

Is that what you are saying John?


Run HDMI to the TV but request 3 to 4 Cat6 runs also for future proofing. Today you can connect all your sources into your Denon 1909 and then connect the HDMI cable to it and the TV and enjoy your new setup. The cat6 is for anything different in the future.

yes that is what I am saying... In wall... If it's not in wall? heck, just add them as needed.

Sorry, I guess I should have mentioned this will be an in-wall install.

Running cable from closet, up thru attic, down wall to family room. Total distance approximately 50 feet.

From what I gather, the point of running the additional cat6 cables are to add additional components in the future. Might as well run all the cables at one time. This makes sense.

My initial post came about because an installer was saying that I would have to totally bypass using the denon 1909 with my components and run cables directly from the components (thru the attic) to the tv. He was saying the analog signal from my dvd player and vcr couldn't be processed via the 1909. This didn't make sense to me.
