    My dvd player is about 20' from my tv and is connected directly through s-video. My receiver (Sony 4ES) has the capability to perform Component Video Switching. Since I can't get my dvd player close enough to connect to the component inputs of my tv, would I achieve better video if I connected the player to my receivers component inputs and then output to my tv through s-video?

    Thanks.

    Most all AVR's will not downconvert like that. You would have to go component in, component out. Your AVR Component Video switching whould be rated to at least 50mhz, or you may see a degrading of the picture.
