The advantage of using an AVR/processor as the switching device and having it feed video to the Lumagen is that you'll be able to continue to use the GUI. Using older AVRs had been associated with HDMI issues (and some potential for video degradation if the AVR's video processing circuitry could not be totally defeated), but I have ZERO problems running video sources initially through my Yamaha RX-A3080. I'm unable to predict how your Denon will interface.
