i have a Yamaha 200 dollar reciever. I didnt look at video inputs when buying and just concentrated on audio


Now I have 3 component inputs I want to plug into my tv however only 2 ports on the tv (you may have seen my other post about switchers)


Will the quality be the same if I return the Yamha reciever and get the Sony reciever (it has 2 component inputs and an output) as it would be if I were to go get one of those component switcher like the inday or the audio authority?

niwi1038:

I would not do your switching through your $200 Yamaha. The concern is whether or not the bandwidth of the component video circuits in the receiver is sufficient to carry the signal - bad news if not. Also (aside from bandwidth concerns) there is a concern for what kind of noise running your video signal through will be generated by the receiver.


I certainly can't comment on the specific model, Yamaha or Sony, :D. I would think that either a receiver that has proven to have good component switching capability (go the the forum for receivers and ask there) or else use a proven component switcher.


Good luck!

I agree with mnilan, if the question is will it degrade my signal? the answer is: maybe, maybe not. I think you might have better chance of it not degrading the signal if you were using a bit higher end receiver. With a higher end receiver or switcher, I don't think you'd see any problems. That being said - you may not have problems with the receiver that you have now - you should give it a try and see. If you are satisfied with the output then I'd say you're in luck. It's nice to know what the other options are though, just so you're prepared.

It WILL degrade your signal, the signal is travelling further and going through more components.


Good thing is: it wont degrade very much at all, it degradation probably wont be visible.


I switch video and HD still looks good.
