I have a DVD and a VCR hooked up to my TV via a Yamaha RX-V1400 A/V receiver. The DVD is hooked up through component video and the VCR is hooked up via S-Video (that's the best the VCR will allow). Both are hooked up to different inputs on the TV. I can watch the VCR via the S-Video input or the component video input since both are connected to the rceciver then to the TV. When I choose to watch the VCR through the component output (remember my VCR does not support component video only S-Video and the lesser composite video), is the Yamaha RX-V1400 actually upconverting the signal from S-Video to component video for the VCR? I do notice a slightly better quality picture using the component video setup.
