    Hi all-

    I'm looking to purchase a receiver to power 5 Sonance VP65R speakers and a Polk 505 Sub. I have a 60" Vizio LED tv as well. I also have an HTPC (running XBMC) with a number of my movies in varying quality levels. I was looking at refurb amps on accessories4less was originally thinking the 471 would suit my needs. I then noticed that the 571 provides 1080p upscaling. I'm wondering if this will help provide better quality for movies that I have on my HTPC in SD format.

    I also have another question. My XBOX only has component output. Will this receiver take component input and send it to the TV over the HDMI output?

    Yes.If the 575 does not have HDMI upconversion, the 675 does.
