I am leaning heavily toward getting the Onkyo TXDS898, but I have a few questions about how this receiver handles video and audio switching. First of all, what exactly is component video switching? Is it the ability of the receiver to switch between 2 component video sources while using a single output to the TV? Second,for those of you who have this receiver(or other Onkyo receivers with similar features), how does the 7.1 channel surround work? Let's say I am watching a 5.1 source, will my rear surround come from the "side surrounds" or the "back surrounds"? Can you have the receiver set to always play matrixed sound from the back surrounds? Third, how is the remote? Is it a learning remote? Can it perform recorded commands? Finally, if you have this receiver and love it, can you mention what specifically you like about it? If you got a good deal on it, please share your secrets. I am going to try to make a deal at a local dealer, but I am afraid I'll end up getting it online.
