    OK, here's the deal. I need a new receiver. I'm looking at the Pioneer 811S. It has component switching but only provides about 28MHz. I have a prog-scan DVD player and will have the dish hd6000 receiver within a few days. Is that enough bandwidth to properly process/send the component signal to the TV? More importantly, is it better to plug in the component cables directly into the television (50H81) rather than thru the receiver?

    The reciever will not pass HD to my knowlege

    The fewer connections and wires between your TV and your player the better is the general rule, but it shouldn't be much of a problem

    The receiver will pass HD but 28MHz bandwidth will degrade the pictures sharpness. You need at least 37MHz to pass HD properly.

    I notice ZERO difference with passing 480p thru the D811S at all.
    I do not have any 1080i right now so cant give you an opinion on that (until XBOX comes out with a 1080i game anyway)
