I'm looking for a new receiver but can't decide.At the moment I have a 15 year old Kenwood so I haven't been up to date for a while :-)
The only upscaling I would need is for a DVD recorder with S-video output.
So how does the 709 handle this for you, is the picture much better?
On the other hand I would like to check out the new 616 but no S-video inputs anymore. But after reading the forums and finding out how many problems people have with Onkyo I'm not sure if I should go with Onkyo.Seems like every receiver has some kind of productionproblem.
As I use my receiver 80% of the time for movies and 20% for music Onkyo seems the way to go I guess. And music would have to be by network.
Another question: Can you connect a tv as main output and upscale to 1080p and connect a projector as sub output and upscale to 1080i ?
The tv and projector don't have to output at the same time.I can only watch one at a time.
Thanks for any info
