What connection type (if any) would be used to bypass the Video?

Thanks for your help!

In the video set-up you will have choices like 480/720p/1080i/1080p and 'pass-through' . You can try the 1080p and see what you think, let your tv do it (pass through) or have it upscaled from your sat/cable box and then 'pass through' to see if your cable/sat box is best. You will not have to suffer a worse picture by going through an AVR. More than likely unless you have a very critical eye you won't see a difference among any of them.

Thanks again!

Think I will get order it today so I can have it set up before SuperBowl.

I may have some more questions after it arrives. To everyone that has helped me, Thank you very much! This is a great Forum.

You all are great!!!

I ordered the Onkyo HT-S3400 today. I did go through Amazon as the shipping was $45.00 at accessories4less. I got it for $249.00, total, New!

It will be here tomorrow, what stinks is the $6.00 HDMI cables I ordered will not be here until Wednesday, Figures.

Thanks for all your help and for the warm welcome. Now, if you have any questions about BBQ, Lo-n-Slo just ask, that is another one of my passions.
