RE: Best Bang for Buck Used McIntosh AV Recievers

"A little fuzzy as to the benefits of running video through the receiver."

You only need one connection from the HT processor to the video display for multiple video inputs is the main benefit. However, the down side to this setup is that if you want to optimize the display characteristics for a particular source (gaming, computer use, etc.) - the single connection defeats that ability.

In my system I use only two sources, incoming broadcast video and a BluRay player. I want the screen setup the same for both sources and having the screen set for a single input means I only switch between sources at the HT processor.

If you want to use your display for different types of video uses, then it is better to route each type of video input directly to the screen and optimize the screen setup to the particular type of video being displayed.
