Default Yamaha RX-V461 and 1080p?

I hope this is the correct forum for this question. If so - here goes:
We currently have a home theater system with a Yamaha RX-V461 and a 720p TV with Directv feed. We're thinking about replacing the TV with a 1080p set. I should know this, but can I assume the satellite signal runs through the receiver? If so, can the receiver "do" 1080p?

The receiver should pass through whatever signal you feed it. The TV will display it in 1080P, no matter what it gets. TVs are fixed resolution devices.

1080p is on select PPV (direct tv ppv movies included) and blu-ray. There are no 1080p 'broadcasts' but your AVR will resolve this without any troubles. Also as mentioned your display will convert whatever it receives to it's native resolution.

I didn't realize Directv still isn't broadcasting in 1080p. Guess there isn't much need to invest in a new main TV quite yet, then, and no need to invest in a new AVR even when I do. Thanks for the info!

As stated above, DTV does have some PPV offerings in 1080p. But outside that only Blu Ray/HD DVD supports 1080p. If you are going to wait until you start seeing network broadcasts in 1080p, you are probably going to be waiting awile. But a 1080p TV will simply de-interlace a 1080i feed. If your are happy with your current TV's size and features, no reason to upgrade just for 1080p support IMO..

As far as your receiver goes.. It does not have HDMI inputs, so 1080p is not going to matter since most component video inputs on TV's only support up to 1080i. So you would need to connect your BD player and DTV receiver to the TV directly via HDMI for video and optical to the receiver for DD 5.1/DTS sound. Or upgrade to a more current HDMI receiver when you upgrade your TV.

Thanks, Bigloww. It's been 5 years since we had the house built, but I vaguely remember a discussion with the home theater guy about component connections and HD. That's what that discussion was all about. He's more of a audio guy, so he wasn't terribly concerned about handilng 1080p. Now I get it..... again, thanks.

Oh, and while I'm thinking about this - are there good receivers with HDMI in the $200-$300 range?

There certainly are (Onkyo, denon, pioneer and sony all make entry levels around that range) and if you are willing to look at factory re-furbs from accessories4less.com (which come with full manuf warranty) you can end up getting several hundred dollars additional value for that 200-300.

PS there will be no broadcasts in 1080p for the forseeable future- [decades], only ppv and blu-ray as the bandwidth is so large there is no spec for it in the new ATSC broadcast standards.

It is 1080p/60 that exceeds the bandwidth limitations of broadcast TV.

!080p/24 and 1080p/30 are ATSC broadcast formats and have been since the standard was first adopted. The fact that noone is broadcasting these formats has nothing to do with bandwidth restrictions.

The new Onkyo NR414 is a very good 5.1 reciever for $299. It has 6 HDMI inputs and also is a network reciever. The 616 for $90 more is well worth the upgrade IMO..
