So here's what I'd like to do:


Component output from DVD Recorder/VCR into receiver

Component output from Xbox into receiver

Component output from high-definition satellite receiver into receiver

Component output from receiver into projector


So far, so good. Now comes the problem:


S-Video output from receiver into DVD Recorder/VCR


I'd like to be able to use the DVD recorder to record anything that's currently selected on the receiver. Of course, the recorder has no component input. I'd like the receiver to downconvert its exclusively component inputs to S-Video for the recorder. Unfortunately, I've been informed that most (hopefully not all) receivers will not do this. Are there any that do? Ideally reasonably priced, need at least 3 component inputs and 3 optical digital audio inputs.


The alternative would be to run three more S-Video cables from DVD recorder, Xbox, and satellite receiver to the receiver, but not only would that involve a bunch more completely unnecessary cables, but I've got a hunch that my satellite receiver will output component or S-Video but not both.

I think you would have to run an extra set of svideo cables. My SA3250HD HD box will output via component and svideo at the same time.


The HK 635 will downconvert 480i component to svideo/composite.
