    I've done a search, but I can't find a specific answer to this question, so I'll go ahead and ask it.
    What is the desired bandwidth for a receiver/processor to correctly handle component video switching? I see that Crutchfield has the Onkyo TX-DS797 listed at 50 MHz. Is this going to let HDTV signals pass through without degredation?
    Thanks.

    37MHz is generally considered to be the number for HD. Though in practice with most of the displays currently in use a person can get away with a number lower than that and still not have any *noticeable* problem. I use a receiver with about 27 I believe (Denon 3801) and see no degradation on my 55" HDTV compared to direct connection.
