    Hello

    I recently bought a Denon 2307ci AVR - it provides composite, S Vid, Component and HDMI

    I have a 32" Viewsonic LCD as my TV
    DVD = Pioneer DVD recorder
    SAT = ExpressVu 9200 High Def PVR
    Game system - original XBOX

    So i hooked up the AVR to the TV using HDMI
    DVD to the AVR using Component
    DVD to the SAT using Composite (no S VID on the SAT box)
    SAT to the AVR using HDMI
    XBOX to the AVR using S Video

    IT ALL WORKS!!!

    no more TV input switching! all done through the AVR!

    2 big benefits to this

    1. more simplistic for other users of the system
    2. Only 1 video cable to run through the wall (HDMI) - from the wall mounted LCD to the AVR

    I have read about this HDMI handshake problem where switching sources causes you to reboot 1 of the devices - this is not happening to me - i switched from TV to DVD and back again - no issues

    I am extremely happy with this setup

    I'm guessing that you must not have read the Denon manual.....elsewise you'd probably still be futzing with things [​IMG]

    Sounds nice...congradulations

    Cool, you may wanna upgrade the XBOX to a component cable and games should look even better.

    It's the old Xbox right? cause I have the monster component outs for the regular xbox. Perhaps we could work out a deal. I upgraded to the 360 a few months back and dont really need them anymore...or the Xbox for that matter.

    I actually need some sort of component switching device (under $80), however, I dont want any such device to do any kind of converting or scaling of the original image (which is why I cant use the Denon unless theres a way to turn off its scaling). I also need a remote so I can program macros into my remote control to do the switching automatically. anyone have any ideas?
