I just got a denon 3808ci, purely based on the reviews on this forum and now I need some help in figuring out the best way to connect all the components. I read a post by someone who said direct connection to TV worked better for his Wii and I'm wondering if thats true with any component. The components I have are PS3, Wii, Xbox (1st gen) and comcast cable box. Planning to get a Tivo in near future. For audio, everything will go through the receiver, obviously. For video, what is the best way to connect each of these to the TV? My TV is Sony 52" (W4100) and it has enough video inputs to take them all direct (4 HDMI + a bunch of component/s-video). Is there a real advantage in connecting them through the receiver other than just one cable going to the TV? My TV is very a recent model and I believe it does some upconversion as well.. although not sure which one does a better job, the denon or the TV. Some one also mentioned that for audio coaxial or optical sounds better than hdmi. Can anyone share their experiences if they played around with different combinations? I could probably experiment them all and figure out myself, but I'm hoping to avoid buying unnecessary cables and save some money. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks.
