    I have had this receiver for a few years now and was wondering if I should run my component hookup through it then to the tv. Right now I have been running it straight from the DVD to TV. What is the pros and cons of this? Also is this unit getting to be to old? Probably going to run a 5.1 setup for a few more years so I am guessing this is still a kick ass receiver.

    Someone must run their video through the receiver. What are the pros and cons? Will I get a better picture?

    Ideally, running through the receiver adds convenience of letting the receiver switch the video for you instead of going for the TV remote also. You can have 1 line to the set and multiple lines going in to the receiver if you have limited hookups on your set. Theoretically and some may debate this but run the DVD straight to the set with either good component cables or DVI/HDMI if you have them. The less the signal needs to travel and through as few connections as possible will yield a more "pure" signal.
