So i'm in the market for AV receiver and a blu-ray player BUT my big problem is that i have a 1080i 60" Toshiba television.


The receivers i'm looking at right now are
Onkyo TX-SR806 &

Pioneer VSX-01TXH



I get an employee discount on Onkyo,Denon, Marantz & Pioneer and i've narrowed my serach to these two receivers within my budget (btw, feel free to share thoughts about these two receivers or others within it's price range)


Will receivers convert a blu ray movie if i'm running though component to

1080i or will that be an issue with aforementioned receivers.?


Right now i have a HD PVR, xbox 360 and will be getting a blu ray player but with no intentions of upgrading my tv anytime soon. I'm still very satisfied with my pic quality and it's treated me great so I can't justify replacing it yet.


So will these receivers have any issues playing blu rays at 1080i and will the receivers have any issues upconverting my dvd collection


Excuse me i'm not clear with what i'm trying to ask but i'll more than happy to clarify what is i'm trying accomplish.


thanks for the help in advance

The only "real" issue I see you having is trying to upconvert standard dvd's with this set up. Your blu-ray options will probably be either 720p or 1080p which the components will handle.

Upconverting SD DVDs through component connection is not allowed. You will have to have HDMI or DVI with HDCP to get upconversion.

You probably just made a type-o but through component, you can only go to 1080i (not 1080p). I have a blu-ray player connected through component to my 720p (native) projector and that is what I set my blu-ray player.


What is the native resolution of your TV? I know you said it can do 1080i but is 1080i the native resolution?

i won't know that off the top of my head right now but what i do know is that it's a 7 -8 years old projection TV and is capable of running at 480 p and 1080i. I hope that helps. It has s-video connection and component video inputs on the back panel. There is no dvi, vga or HDMI.


With my old receiver (yamaha rxv 861) I had my xbox 360 running through my receiver and I would play at 1080i. 'm hoping to be able to do that same with my blu ray player to watch Blue ray movies and my regular dvd's at 1080i.


hope that makes more sense.

Regular DVD will be always @ 480p with your setup. Neither Xbox 360 nor any BD player will allow any upconvsion via component.

so unless i upgrade to a tv with 1080p I'm unable to enjoy my watch blu rays at 1080i & and instead i'll be watching them at 480p?


I recently picked up 30+ blu rays, before i even bought my blu ray player

Blu-Ray will be 1080i via component (1080p via HDMI or DVI with HDCP). I said 'Regular DVD' are 480p.


I'd upgrade your TV first before buy into Blu-Ray. Those old tubes are not that great in resolve subtle details a Blu-ray movie can offer you over regular DVD.

ahhh ok i got you.. i'm tempted to upgrade the tv but it's not in the budget right now.


one more question ... my computer has HDMI and DVI outputs on the video card.. i'm assuming you can't convert that to a componen for the purpose of watching HD movies

For strange reason, upconvert via VGA is allowed. So, if you can find a VGA to component converter, you will get upconverted regular DVD. However, your computer's HDMI or DVI port maynot be useful in the future connecting to a digital HDTV unless it supports HDCP.
