Hi all,

I'm considering buying an Onkyo TX-NR609 receiver/amp which features 'analog to HDMI upconversion'.

Does this mean I will be able to input my SKY decoder (not MySky) into the component inputs of the receiver & output via HDMI  to my HD TV?

Yes, but it won't look the best.

Any opinions expressed on Geekzone are my own and not those of my employer.

Thanks for the response.
Do you mean it may look worse than if I went component in/component out?

Yes - the Onkyo will take care of the upscaling for you.
It's less hassle to use the amp all around, as you won't need to switch your TV away from whatever connection you've plugged the HDMI cable into.
I can't comment on the picture quality of the Onkyo amp, that would be something for you to assess on your own TV.

My thinking exactly - one HDMI connection to the TV, use the amp to choose the input.
Guess I'll just have to suck it & see as far as picture quality goes.
