    Many people recommend sending video directly from DVD to TV. The more connections you make the better the chance to introduce problems. The fewer connections the better. Of course, if you are limited by the number of a connections on your TV, then using your receiver as a video switch may become necessary.

    For best results, connect straight to tv.
    The only reason for going to receiver first, is if you have more than one source, with same kind of outputs and tv has only one input of that type. In that case it's better to go thru receiver first, and can switch between the sources from remote.
    Going straight to tv means just one set of cables too. [​IMG]

    Your choice as long as your receiver has 50mhz of higher bandwidth on its component video switching.
