Would this also be true for video or would it serve any purpose to run it through this processor to improve video performance and use the 7.1 feature for audio.
Most here just run HDMI only to TV for video and keep the audio separate. If you use 8-channel audio from your source like the OPPO offers (8-channel out) this will decode all you need.
Since I don't have any 1080p sources I still use component cables and at this point in time am not going to have anything to do with HDMI until I am forced to start using it.
