I am wondering why you would run an HDMI wire from, say, your DVD player, to a receiver with HDMI input, then output that to a HDTV. I thought that you get a cleaner picture by running it from any HDMI source strait to the HDTV. I also thought that there would be a better upconverter or deinterlacer in the t.v. than in the receiver. Even if there is not, why would you spend twice the money to run two HDMI wires for output/input to the receiver then again to the HDTV?

I have the Denon AVR-4306 with 3 HDMI Inputs, and I am very glad I have it. DirecTV HD TiVo, HDMI DVD Player, and space for the PlayStation 3 whenever that comes out. Also, if your source material is already sent to the receiver at the desired resolution, it doesn't matter what kind of upconverter/deinterlacer is in your receiver or your television. It's not "twice" the money, either, if you have more than one device. It's only one extra cable. Convenience is worth the extra money to some people, myself included.

If you only have a single HDMI source to route to the TV then there's no reason. The reason is to be able to switch between several HDMI sources if your TV has only one DVI/HDMI input.

Short answer: Many people only have one HDMI / DVI input on their display and more than one HDMI device they want to hook up to it.

I think some newer receivers and pre-amps convert everything to HDMI. Therefore you could connect your VCR and Laserdisc or anything else you have to your receiver/pre-pro and have just the one output to the display/tv.

The YAMAHA RX-V2600 will take Analog inputs and convert them to 1080i and output that on the HDMI output jack that ten feeds your HDTV set. Nice feature and works great! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
