Question about Denon AVR-4308CI Receiver
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.
