The older TXH video spec that the Denon 4802 meets doesn't have the bandwidth to pass full 1080p (and maybe not even 720p) without significant degradation like newer TXH Ultra and TXH Ultra II equipment does. So using a HDMI converter to connect your new TV to the 4802 in this way just adds more electronics in the signal path- which can only make things worse.

For the reasons I cited above, I now only use my 4802 for audio. I have a direct HDMI cable between my DirecTV box and my TV, and use component video cables direct from my DVD/Blu-Ray player to the TV- thereby giving me the best video and audio my equipment is capable of. But this still sucks, of course, because it means that to switch from one source to the other, you need to use several remotes to switch the receiver input (for the audio) and the TV source input for the video. Time to buy a new receiver with built-in HDMI 1.3a switching.

Not sure why! I was told this was the best way to hook up my 1080p projector I am looking to buy. Hate to get rid of such a good receiver just for HDMI connectivity.

Thanks for your earlier response.

I have a denon avr-4802 receiver. I am looking to purchase new speakers for this system, but don't want to put too much into the speakers. Will the speakers from a denon s-302 work on this receiver? ...

Page 10. The S-302 uses a proprietary D-Sub25 system cable to the DSW-S302 subwoofer. Don't know if or why it has more than 2 active conductors. The other speakers have removable cable ends so they might work just fine.

I'm buying a 1080p blue ray disk player. I have this receiver, will it support 1080p? Thanks: Denon avr-4802.


Hi - If you mean can you run/switch a 1080P video source through the receiver, then the answer is no. It can only switch through the video component connectors on the receiver (1080i) but it's not a problem you can just connect your new BR player directly into the TV (HDMI) and have the audio handled by the receiver. It's a common setup and you're not really losing anything. It's the setup I have.
Enjoy your new great BR experience!!

Changing the component input to composite or s-video output


It will not work. This unit can not convert video signal from component to s-video. Use the same type of connections on DVD and TV.

Connecting two mulitchannel devices into one receiver


I guess you could try y cable adapters for input on the Denon. Might get messy. Try radio shack and pick up 5 y cables for the speakers and 1 for the sub. Someone probably makes an audio switcher that handles that as well.
