Many videophiles, it seems, still wouldn't be caught dead running their video inputs through an AV receiver, believing that it will visibly degrade the signal. Yet there are also a lot of Home Theater buffs who use their AV receiver for video switching, and who don't seem to notice any degradation of the picture. Have times changed? Is it now OK to run one's video through an AV receiver? (Yes, I know, bandwidth is an issue...). My Question to this forum: 1. Do you use your AV receiver to switch your video signals? If so, do you perceive any signal degradation (have you looked for signal degradation?). 2. If you don't, why not? Do you run your cables directly to the monitor, or have you tried outboard video switchers? Many thanks. Rich H.
