Hdmi Hookup Woes

Recommended Posts

if say I have a 720P LCD TV and a 1080P projector - I want to hook both up to both Xbox 360 and PS3 using HDMI and 1080P setting.

Is there any receiver (or any other device) that can downscale the 1080P HDMI signal to either 720P HDMI or Component?

yes but mostly the expensive receivers - but it shouldn't be a hassle as it is since your 720p tv should understand 1080i/p signals and downscale by itself. you may need some sort of matrix switch (2 in, 2 out) though. very worse case the tv will tell the xbox/ps3 the max res it understands and it will adjust the game accordingly.

both devices should be outputting 720p for gaming regardless cos thats what most games are written in, let the display do the upscaling. 1080p for blu movies to the projector though.

the higher up marantz receivers do, but they dont output simultaneously but thats not that a big deal
