Thanks for the great info! I agree, your two posts should be added to the FAQ.

I am actually sniffing around getting a new receiver soon. I had been looking at the Yamaha RX-V679, though I note that it no longer appears on the Yamaha website. It was a two-zone 7.1 channel receiver. I only wanted the 7.1 so that I could take one for the second zone, and still have 6.1 remaining. It claimed "HDTV compatible 3 component video inputs", but I hadn't looked into that much since I don't have (and am not planning on) HDTV**. I probably should, though, for future upgrading.

I can see I need to make a pilgrimage to my favorite audio store to see what's up now.


**Right now very little is done in HD, and what little is done I don't care about (e.g. sports, and the blonde bimbo in the HD commercial whom I have no interest in checking out, but I'd like to smack her for being so arrogant and annoying).
