Default surround sound question....signal switching?

What exactly is it, or does it mean? I searched avsforum and couldn't find anything.

I was reading some reviews of the system I bought, which doesn't do signal switching, but I don't think it is going to affect me.

I have my dvd player connected to my tv with component video, and the audio is connected from my dvd player to my current receiver with digital coax connection.

Can anyone explain it to me.

BTW, I bought the onkyo 740 system from circuit city for 389 bucks.

Meh, some receivers can switch multiple audio and video sources?

my receiver can switch two HDMI (combines audio and video) and 6 compnent video signals plus coax or optical 5.1.

negates the need to run any vdeo signal directly to the TV. let the receiver do the "switching".

mebbee that's it?

Yes, the thing that makes an AV Surround Receiver "AV" is the ability to control Audio & Video; Otherwise, it would just be a Audio Surround Receiver.

95% of the Surround Receivers have some sort of ability to control various types of video signals.

My 1993 AV Receiver has a ProLogic decoder & can switch composite video (single yellow RCA jack).
After the days of composite there was S-video.
After S-video, came Component Video (R,B,G)
The newest is DMI & HDMI?

Back in the day hardly any Surround Receivers controlled video signals.

Some high end receivers today have built in converters to convert one signal to another too.

The only thing that makes a unit a "Receiver" is the AM/FM tuner built in.
A "Stereo Receiver" denotes 2ch only with AM/FM.
An "Integrated Amp" is a preamp & amp in the same enclosure, no tuner.
If you know the difference between Ceramic & Magnetic Cartridge & what they are for you get 5 points...
Yes, there will be a quiz latter...

Hmmm. Well, my old one couldnt do video signals, so I guess it's no big deal that this one can't either.
