Yamaha RX-V1065 A/V Receiver Video Test Bench
The Yamaha does not perform any deinterlacing or upscaling on HDMI inputs. It simply passes the input resolution through to the output. Therefore, the Digital 3:2, 2:2, MA, and Scaling tests here are not applicable. The Digital Video Clipping, Luma Resolution, and Chroma Resolution tests were all done with a 1080p HDMI input and a 1080p HDMI output. The receiver’s Digital passthrough results on these tests were good, apart from a Borderline result on the Luma Resolution test. The topmost vertical resolution burst was slightly reduced in level but still had usable response. The horizontal luma resolution passed cleanly.
It was a different story for the Analog tests—component in to HDMI out. The RX-V1065 will upconvert 480i and 480p to 1080p in this situation, but not 1080i to 1080p (thus the N/A result for the Analog HD tests). The Video Clipping, Luma Resolution, and Chroma Resolution tests were all performed with a 1080i input and a 1080i output. The results here were poor, apart from a passing grade on our 2:2 SD test. I do not recommend using cross-conversion (component in to HDMI out) on this receiver except on sources where video quality isn’t important.—TJN
