Summary: I bought the package of Speakers, Receiver and DVD player from Amazon. I have a Samsung HD TV (1080i) that has component input but no HDMI port. When I connect DVD player to Receiver by HDMI and Receiver to TV by component, it does not work! This was not clearly seen in specifications but is hidden in the manual. Speaker wires provided are cheap. Presently I am using it for playing music, which is fine.
Summary: Don't buy this if you think it has HDMI Up-conversion, IT DOES NOT!. The way the copy is written I was mistaken. You will still need to run all you component, audio, S-video etc. cords to your TV if the input source is not HDMI, video game systems are an example. I made a major blunder not opting for the next model up which does up-convert. The pain is that if I want to trade it at J&R I have to pay for the additional shipping.
