What is the advantage of hooking up your video components thru a receiver?
Some people like to control everything through their receiver.
A big advantage is if your TV is short of component inputs (for example you have only two sets of component inputs and have a DVD player, an HD satellite receiver and an X-Box) Running two or more of these into a receiver and then one output to your TV allows everything to be connected without buying a switch box.
If it were me and I would connect directly unless short of inputs.
It’s also more convenient: You get both audio and video happening on the system with one button on the remote. Connect video signals directly to the TV and you have to switch audio and video separately each time you change components.

So you would have the receiver hooked up to the tv thru one cable and then all the others components whould be connected to the receiver. So you would always keep the tv on video 1 and just switch the receiver from dvd to cable? Is there any loss of video quality?
