Need receiver with componenet inputs

btw, this is rypro's bro Jordan. Anyhow, I've been looking around trying to find a surround sound system with component inputs for video games. Currently, the best I can find are systems with component outputs which unfortunately, don't meet my needs.

ex of a receiver that only supports component outputs


So far, the only one that I can find that has component inputs are these really expensive Yamaha speakers ($1300).



Here's the backside with component inputs.



So, if anyone knows of any receivers that have component inputs (and component output obviously) that don't cost too much, please let me know.

And if my dire need for a receiver that has component inputs for video games is not necessary, please let me know.


Thanks for the help!

I would recommend the Onkyo SR-600. You can find it online for around $400. Great sound and features also.

Ohh yeah. If you have enough component inputs on your TV, you should just run the video cables straight into it. Or a seperate component video switcher is an option.

You need speakers included in the $500? That kind of cuts down on your options, it'll be pretty hard to find a receiver with component switching and still have enough for decent speakers with $500. You could always get a receiver that can't handle component switching and buy a seperate switch - that would save some $$ on the cost of the receiver.

Right now I'm using a composite switch that cost around $20 at Radio Shack for Gamecube and PS2 - it works fine for progressive scan. I've heard you can have trouble passing a high defniniton signal (720p and 1080i) but I haven't tried it. All you have to do to use a composite switch as a component switch is match up the right inputs and outputs - if you plug the blue cable into the yellow input make sure the blue cable is the yellow output etc.

i didnt want to start a new thread but wanted to know if this htib is any good
http://www.bestbuy.com/detail.asp?e=...=1552&scat=242
its a panasonic HT-DM150. its got a progressive scan dvd player, 300 total watts, a 70 watt sub and its only 299.99!
unless there is a problem with this model, it seems like this is the best one out there for the price.
