Does the component switching on Pioneer Elites allow for full bandwidth?

    Thinking about getting either the VSX-35TX or the VSX-36TX, but I can't find any info about the quality of the component switching. Does it pass the complete, full bandwidth of the signal?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Here are the online manuals for the 35TX and 36TX:

    Apparently, the 35TX has only 13 MHz of chroma bandwidth, and 20 MHz of luma bandwidth, which is not enough to preserve a high-def signal.
    Unfortunately, the 36TX manual doesn't list the bandwidth of its component video section.
    On a related topic, does anyone know the component video bandwidth of the 47TX and 49TX? Pioneer's site simply says it's "HD-Ready", which could mean just about anything.

    The Pioneer Elite VSX-49TX component video frequency response is 5 Hz to 40 MHz +0 -3 dB.
