    If you have multiple video sources (VCR, LD, DVD, HD box etc etc) then you may want to use your receiver to do the video switching and then take the composite, s-video, and component (if applicable) from the receiver to the projector as the projector may not have enough inputs to accomodate all the devices.

    Basically though, if your projector has enough inputs, you can hook the DVD directly to the projector via component cables. For TV signals, you can use a VCR via composite cables, or a satellite dish setup via component cables or s-video, of a HD box to pull in the HiDef signals using component cables as well.

    please post what make/model of crt pj you have. few crt pj's can accept a component input, most only do rgb and you will need a transcoder or video processor. since it looks like your sources are of more than one type of connection a video processor/scaler would probably be your best bet.

    What Craig said. Let us know if you already have the scaler also.
