    I'm in the market for a new reciever. I have some video components that use RCA (composite) and some use S-video.

    I want to run one S-video cord to my TV and no RCA. Is there a reciever that can intake a RCA and output it thru the S-video.

    Also a lot of the recievers a see say that in in order to get below 100hz on your front speakers there won't be a signal sent to the sub. Is this true with all recievers? I mean I have big front speakers and I want to use my sub but where would the sub get a signal if I have the reciever set on big fronts

    What Harold says is correct.

    Wow, great advice, it is appreciated.

    the composite video sources would: Dreamcast, laptop, and a vcr. I found the cheap RCA to S-video plugs in my parts express catalog. Would the quality with the plug be as good as the RCA alone?

    I have just noticed that some of the newer recievers have the ability to send front

    Yes, if your sub has an x-over defeat altogether, that is the best way. Otherwise, just set it to it's highest point, which is often higher than the receiver's x-over, in which case, there is no cascade effect.
