    Does anyone know if you have any older model receiver with no yellow jack for video if it can still be used to build a home theater system?????? Thanks

    sure you just have to use something else to switch video sources (like the tv itself)

    Nothing in the rule book says you can't!

    In addition, many A/V fans do not to use the receiver as a switching device, but prefer instead to route video sources directly to the monitor. And two-channel stereo still qualifies as a home theater. You can always build up from there.

    While what Stephen and Jack say is certainly true, that you can use this receiver, the fact is that if it doesn’t have any video capabilities it is probably only a stereo receiver. This means it won’t do surround sound, and certainly not the Dolby Digital audio you get with DVDs.
