I don't know if you had a price range in mind, but my Sunfire TG2 passes video even when its off, thru component only, so I would assume that the new Sunfire Ultimate Receiver does as well. Also, I believe the reason that it does this (the composite and S video get cut off when the TG2 is shut down) is because the switching is done by a relay, and doesn't need active electronics. The relay apparently stays in the position that it was last in. I suspect it was designed this way to allow for higher bandwidth, and would suspect that a great many other products function the same way.
Thanks guys for the response. So for me this is a good thing. Now I am wondering when A/V Receivers will be coming out in the Mid-Level range that will offer DVI/HDCP(HDMI) and Component switching--any takers on this one?
