Hi all,

I am really in a bind at this point. I need to know which (any and all) AV receivers can accomplish the following functions (price is not an issue, i am willing to pay whatever cost):


*accept 3+ composite video and audio sources,

*3+ component video and audio sources,

*and 3+ HDMI sources, upconvert all through HDMI to 1080p with complete audio passthrough

*act as an HDMI switch

*use only one HDMI out to my sony XBR46 LCD to display all audio and video inputs


I know that seems specific, but any help you guys have would be great.

Thanks

It is specific but it is not that unusual.


Here's an Onkyo: http://www.onkyousa.com/model.cfm?m=...s=Receiver&p=i


Here's a Denon: http://www.usa.denon.com/ProductDetails/3510.asp#


Here's a Sony: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...52921665532067


I could go on and on but you can Google them, too. The only issue is half of the last point: Do you really mean that you will be using the amps and speakers in the Sony LCD? If so, you will need to read the user's manuals but, again, most of those are on line.

Thanks so much, and to clarify, i will be using all the audio outputs to my LCD 'cause my speakers are currently out of operation. For my own personal information, what exactly is the feature that is required to upconvert the video audio from component and composite sources through HDMI?

Quick question again, what about the quality of a composite to HDMI adapter? i can use my current onk 606 if i can get two composite to HDMI and two component to HDMI adapters, but the four adapters alone total almost 600$!!

I do not know if it has a standardized name. The only suggestion would be to read the user's manuals and see how they tell you to hook up the inputs for HDMI output.


Perhaps it would be easier to keep the Onkyo and get a pair of very inexpensive speakers. Almost any would be better than what is in the typical LCD.

wait, so you want to pass the audio inputs out via the HDMI to the TV? I don't think ANY receiver will do that. They will pass through HDMI audio, but they will not "upconvert" non-HDMI audio inputs to HDMI output. The video switching thing is easy, most new receivers will convert all video inputs to HDMI output to the display, but the audio part is an issue.
