onkyo 575x and lack of component input?

I have an onkyo 575x receiver which I am currently using as a video switching source. unfortunately it does not switch component video sources, so how would one go about adding a progressive scan dvd player to the mix? would you simply wire the dvd player video direct to the component connections on the television, and router the other cables exactly as they are now, and switch to the component signal on the television and select dvd from the onkyo remote?
I guess a remote macro could be made to handle this chore?

That's exactly how I do it. Actually, as long as my TV had enough inputs, I think I'd bypass component switching even if my receiver could handle it.

yep, no reason to run it through any equipment you don't have to, just another chance for loss on the picture..

Exactly what I told my friend who was looking at an Onkyo HTIB. There is no reason to run a component video cable from the DVD Player (since this is usually the only device which uses it) to the receiver and then another cable from the receiver to the TV. That is extra unneeded cable. The only problem you may run into, is if you decide to connect your video game system up via component cable as well.
