    I hate that term: "upconversion." You're receiver isn't "upconverting" anything, all it is doing is allowing you to use different inputs from your sources (i.e. S-video, RCA, component) while only using the component "out" from your avr to the monitor. It's a misnomer because any signals coming into the avr that are less than component quality aren't upscaled at all. If you use a rca's from your stb to the avr, you'll get rca quality out of the component wires to the monitor. It makes life a lot easier and allows fewer wires, but it doesn't improve your video quality. What you put in is what you'll get out.
