Question about Denon AVR-2801 Receiver
What kind of 'video' performance will I have if I upgrade to a hi end dvd player since my Denon lacks an HDMI connection, yet it has an optical in jack for audio? Can I connect the DVD player directly to my plasma tv via HDMI and then connect from the dvd players optical out to my Denons input?
The 2801 (I used to have a 2803) is just an AV receiver, so it doesn't do any video processing.
If you get a DVD player with HDMI or DVI output, you'll be better off doing what you said - bypass the receiver for video and connecting the video directly to your TV, and the audio to your receiver.
It makes things less convenient since you can't switch inputs only with the receiver's remote, but you'll get a much better picture.
If you really need to control the whole system with a single remote, consider getting a Logitech Harmony remote or something similar. They're very convenient.
