    Does the Denon 1803 convert composite video signals up to s-video? Also, does it convert composite and s-video up to component video? The reason i'm asking is because if possible, i would like to run all of my sources (DVD-component, PS2-component, DTV-s-video, VCR-composite, other game systems-s-video or composite through the inputs on the front) into the receiver and have one (or two) cables running from the receiver to the TV so i would never have to change channels on the TV.

    Thanks

    I tried that and I couldnt get a picture. If you run a combination of S-Video and Composite, youll also need to run both types to your TV.

    I have the 1802 and from what I've gathered, the receiver doesnt have the capability of doing that.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the response. I was pretty sure that's what i would find out. I know that some Onkyo receivers convert up from composite to svideo, but i've never seen a receiver that converted up to component. Oh well, i guess you can't have it all [​IMG]
