I recently purchased the Pioneer VSX-1020 A/V Receiver for my home setup. I am running a BluRay Player (HDMI), PVR (HDMI), and a Nintendo Wii (Component). I am running all the components into the receiver and one HDMI out. The BluRay and PVR work fantastic, however I cannot get a signal (Audio or video) for the Wii. According the manual, when I run a component in to the unit, it says I need to run component out as well. This doesn't seem right.

My question is whether the receiver should be able to take a comonent signal in and export it via the ONE HDMI output to the TV. Assuming this is the case, am I missing something?

If the receiver doesn't transcode the component input to HDMI out, then you do need component video output to the TV. Many less expensive AVRs are like that. However, when I looked at the specs for this AVR, it seemed to transcode (and upconvert if you want from analogue inputs)

Anchor Bay® and PureCinema video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, including analog.
Sounds like you're doing something wrong, especially if you're not getting any audio either, which should be straight forward, assuming you've connected the correct audio cable(s) to the correct input on the AVR. Make sure you're using three separate inputs for your 3 devices and that you're tuned to the appropriate input for the Wii. I can't remember if the Wii has a menu item or switch to use the CV outputs either...

Go to page 70 of the manual and check to see if the V.Conv. setting is turned on. You may also have to go into the Input Setup menu on page 70 and set it to the right input.

IIRC, you need the 1025 in order to have video conversion to HDMI. But I'm not 100% sure. One thing for sure, however, on Pioneer, video conversion is always defaults to ON from the factory.
