If you go through your receiver with video inputs, will you loose quailty??
The main advantage is convenience. While no well-designed receiver will degrade the video signals it switches, it could happen with some models. If you notice a problem, try connecting the TV both ways and compare them. If you get a worse picture through your receiver, you'll need to upgrade it or stick with a direct connection
So, I guess there is no definative answer other than to try it both ways. Mine is also on direct connect since I don't want to spring for another Better Cables S-video cable.
