I'm awaiting delivery of my Yamaha RX-V861. I have a Panasonic DMR EH55 DVD Recorder with HDMI OUT. My TV does NOT have HDMI connections. Would I see a picture improvement (over regular component video conneciton quality) if I ran HDMI from the DVD Recorder to the RX-V861 Receiver and from the receiver connect to my TV with Component Video as my TV doe NOT have HDMI connections? The RX-V861 claims to do upscaling. Would this give me a slightly better picture quality than regular component video given the claim of UPSCALING?
