    Go direct, unless you use multiple display devices. Why would you even to take a chance on changing the signal? Just my opinion though!!

    If you are close to your TV you won't notice any difference in video quality between direct connect and routing via the receiver. It then becomes a matter of being able to see onscreen controls etc.

    I agree with John, only go to the receiver if you have to. If your TV has enough inputs go straight to it.

    If you only have 1 component-video device, there is no advantage to running through the receiver.
    I like to run direct to the TV, but also run a composite video cable for every source through my receiver. This means the entire system can be run with just the receiver remote. This makes the system simple to use for the family/kids.
