    Those using this receiver and have tested or are ~{using it to switch between S-vid picture sources}~, is there any picture degrading as opposed to direct S-vid run from picture source to RPT?????

    Would be very convienent to use the receiver to do the S-vid swiching as long as it dose NOT degrade picture quailty.

    All connections would be quaility S-vid to the receiver with one S-vid monitor out to feed selected video source to 46" RPT.

    Did a search and coud find nothing related "directly to this question". Did find that it will not up convert S-vid to component so you can run just one Component cable to the TV.

    Not running Progressive yet so component feed is not needed at this time. All sources would be S-vid fed, DVDx2, S-VHS, and Analog Cable to the receiver with one S-vid out to the RPT.

    So dose the 811 work well for this, or is picture quaility degraded a little or badly and direct feed from all video sources should go to RPT?????

    Thanxs

    Edit:
    Is anyone with an 811 driving 6-ohm load speakers all round and how dose the receiver handle it with moderate volumes when set to small, and also large?

    Will be running seperate amps but would like to use a few (3 or less) of the 811 amp channels if it can handle the 6-ohm load at 89-db @1m/1w...

    I haven't seen any picture degradation. I haven't tried 6 ohm speakers, but I have read in several threads that the non-elite pioneer receivers don't get along well with anything below 8 ohms.
