Up until now, I've had my home theater setup that all audio goes through the receiver, while video goes straight to the TV (it's a fairly high-end Sony with 7 inputs for up to 7 components). The reason: I thought it might give better picture quality.


Since then, I've noticed that switching both the video and audio sources everytime I want to play something is probably an unnecessary chore. My question: will routing my video through the receiver degrade quality in any way?

The short answer is yes it will degrade video somewhat switching through a receiver. The question is how big your display is as to how noticeable that difference is.


I have a FP projecting a 108" image. When I tried switching it through my prepro (that's supposed to have plenty of bandwidth even for HD), the resulting degradation of the picture was completely unacceptable.


Now if I were using a 40" rather than 108" the difference might not have been big enough to justify the inconvenience of manually switching wires. I don't know. But on my display it was a complete no-go.
