    Does anyone know if I can use my Denon 5700 as an HD component video switch? My TV, Panasonic PT-56WXF-90, has only one component video imput. I would like to connect my RP91K and my TU-HDS20 HD decoder to the TV at the same time. Thanks for your help.

    I'm pretty sure that the component inputs on the 5700 don't have sufficient bandwidth for HD.I think that they are rated at somewhere around 27mhz which isn't even enough for 480P,however,I've tried it and didn't see any adverse effects(Toshiba 5109).That said,I definetly wouldn't use it to switch 1080i or 720P.
