    ok I'm looking at a new system (budget in mind)
    I'm looking at a receiver from Sony. It has HDMI input. It also has Component input and output.

    I'm also looking at a dvd player that can upconvert to HD through the hdmi cable.

    If I hook the upconverting dvd player hdmi wire to the receiver, that, I believe will put the signal and sound into the receiver.
    I only have component input in my TV.
    Will I get any benefit from the upconverting?

    no, you should look to a dvd player that upconverts over componet, or an outboard video processor that outputs component. The latter is obviously much more expensive.
