    This is what I have:

    Receiver: Yamaha HTR-5760
    TV: Mitsubishi HDTV WS-55411
    DVD: Mitsubishi DD-6030
    Digital HDTV Cable Box.

    Is it better to run the component video through the Yamaha then to the TV or should I run the cables straight to the TV from each device?
    What is the purpose of connecting the video to the Yamaha first?

    Thanks.

    The only advantage of running video to your receiver is that then you can use the receiver to switch inputs and save connections to your TV. IE, TV always stays on input one and you change what's feeding it with the receiver.

    The primary reason is convenience: If all your video goes through the receiver, one button on the remote gets both your audio and video up and running. Otherwise you have to switch audio and video separately.

    Ok, that makes sense.
