I have an older HDTV with component input only (no HDMI). I would like to get a new receiver so I can switch between HDMI inputs (I now have several) but I need to go OUT to component, at least until this TV dies. I asked Best Buy and the guy said he was no expert but he knew for a fact that component only goes as high as 720 p. While that may be true, I am currently getting 1080i from my Comcast box and it works just fine for me. Ultimately, I want to get a PC connected to this TV and hoping that a receiver can bridge that connection. Thanks all.
