Well, my Kenwood took a dump recently and yesterday, I became the proud owner of an open box Yamaha RXV-540. So far, it's been a great little box, sounding fuller and deeper than the Kenwood ever did. And it has a ton of video inputs, so, I decided to try to route my stuff through it. I had component cables for my DVD so I went from that to the Yamaha. I ran the Tivo (composite) into the Cable Box input and my PS2 (S-video) into the VCR input. Everything ran out via an S-video cable to my TV. How cool is it that I can now do one button push and have the desired device? Very. But, I needed another set of component cables (for Yamaha (DVD) to TV) as well as another S-video cable (for Yamaha (Tivo) to TV). Today I ran around town and got myself a set of component cables and an S-video cable. I went home for lunch and plugged everything in. Works great. Except that instead of being able to leave the TV on Video 1 and have TV, DVD, PS2, I can only have TV and PS2 controlled by the Yamaha. For component video DVD, I have to switch my TV to Video 2 as Video 1 only accepts composite and S-video . Needless to say, I'm a bit bummed about this. I won't be upgrading my TV anytime soon so I guess I'll just have to deal with it. I should be able to set a macro on my universal remote so I can still "one button" start my DVD.
