Is there any advantage to buying an XA1 or AX2 other the fact that is costs quite a bit less with the recent price reductions to get the XA1? I have an older Pioneer Elite PRO 610HD that will take a 1080i signal, so the XA2's 1080p output will not be used. The PRO610HD only has component inputs. My integrated HT amp is currently a Yamaha DSP-A1 that has analog 5.1 inputs and no HDMI. I have a new Yamaha RX-Z1 that's new in the box I will be hooking up this year that has the same set up. I've seen a few HDMI to component convertors for sale so I could use one of those to utilize the upscaling in either HD-DVD player to my older component only TV. I can't find much any information on this type of device anywhere however. Anybody ever used one? What's the best thing for somebody like me to do with an early adopter HDTV and a non HDMI HT receiver? I would think there are quite a few people here in the same boat.
