    I have this receiver and I just plugged my component cables directly into the TV, bypassing the receiver altogether. The S-Video I use for my SAT and VCR connection.

    "Why does a receiver even have s-video ports?"

    ??? So you can plug S-Video devices into the receiver and then pass S-Video to the TV. Not everyone has a component TV.

    I don't know why you would want to route component video thru the receiver anyway. Those cables are usually at least 30 bucks a pop. Go straight to the TV and save yourself from buying 2 cables. Receiver handles the audio. Let your TV handle the video. IMO [​IMG]

    Well, you could have more than 2 devices that can use component video (HD Cable, DVD player, and ReplayTV, for instance), but only have 2 component inputs on the back of your TV...
