    I am getting a Sony HT-6600DP (getting a good deal on a used system) --- it has like 3 S-Video and 2 Component inputs and 1 Component output.

    My question is do you guys know if this can do component upconversion ? eg I connect my VCR with the S-Video and DVD player to component input. Do I need to run a S-Video out from the receiever to the tv as well as component video out to the tv or will the component video out suffice?

    No, see page 9 of the HT-6600DP's user manual. It says that on this receiver, component video signals are not compatible with S-Video signals or composite video signals. The receiver does have two component video INs. So you can connect two components via component and the rest via S-Video. You will just need both a component and an S-Video connection to your TV/display.

    In a word, no. As Toli indicated you will need seperate S-Video and Component Video outputs to your TV.
