Personally, as long as the screen on which you're viewing has enough inputs, I've never seen the point of routing video signals through your audio receiver.

If you, for example, only have one component input and 2 or 3 component sources, then utilizing a receiver's component video switching features is going to be worthwhile.

I just posted a related question to this topic.

Is there any signal/quality loss to the audio if you run it through the TV and then the receiver?
