    I was wondering what's the advantage of doing that rather than going directly to my TV. Is there any difference in image quality? I have Sony STR-DE685 receiver, Sony DVP-NC665P progressive scan DVD and Panasonic widescreen HDTV. Right now I have it hooked up to my TV via component cable. I heared that there are some options on receivers that can only be accessed through on-screen menus when it's hooked up that way (DVD-receiver-TV). Is that true? I just wanted to make sure before I spend $100 for another component cable.

    Thanks for any help.

    Convenience. But is that really an advantage? In some cases, maybe. Best to connect a player directly to the display. The potential for signal degradation is minimized.

    Thanks fopr reply Jack but I just found someone else mention it in FAQ and they say again that there are certain options that can be accessed only this way. So how is it?
