    I recently bought a Denon 3802 receiver, which has component video switching. However, I can't figure out a good way to get it to work with my TV. The reason is because I have the following sources:
    - DVD progressive component
    - Cable box S-video (to cable input of TV, to view stretched)
    - Cable box component (for Hi-Def channels to 1080i input)
    - VCR (composite)

    It seems that the 1080i input will not accept any other signal...am I mistaken on this? If that is the case, then I can't use a single output from the receiver to view all of my sources, can I?

    Can anyone help me figure out a way to make this work? I hate having to switch the TV input manually all the time, and since the Mits remote can't directly access the different inputs (you have to go through them sequentially), I can't program macros on my Sony touchscreen remote.

    I did some more research and found out that the bandwidth of the 3802's component circuits are 27MHz, whereas the required bandwidth for undegraded 1080i signals is 33MHz. So now I'm not sure if I want to use this for switching anyway, since it will theoretically soften the HD picture.

    Does anyone know the bandwidth of the 1080i inputs on the WS-55807? If they are 27MHz or less, then I won't suffer by using the receiver to switch.
