Any cheap receivers with dual component out???

Helping my brother out... the cheaper the better.
He wants to run component to two seperate video sources.

Thanks!

Video sources would seem to suggest you need 2 component video in ports. If that is the case then the vast majority of avr's will suffice. If however you do mean component video out then only some of the high end avr's I've seen have 2 component out ports. You are better off buying a component video switch, which I have seen for $50 or less by afew different vendors, to intergrate into your avr.

Thats what I was thinking.... Thanks.

Typical AVRs only have a single Compnent Video Out, some have 2 In and some have 3 In..
Since the connections for Component Video Out are RCA jacks why not try running Y adapters in each of the AVRs' 3-jacks...
Suggest you use good quality cables and keep as short as possible, yes you may create a slight impedance/level mismatch but likely things should be fine..

Just an idea..

Using a passive approach for component video will lead to degredation of the signal. Only an active approach will keep the image quality.

As pointed out by uncertainty, and still uncertain, is what you mean, exactly?

Does he want to run component out of the receiver and into two different video playback devices or run component into a receiver from two different video sources?
