Will a modern receiver (Sony str-dn1080) convert an analog signal to digital, IE a cable that is component to HDMI, or do I need to buy a converter box? TNX

    For component, I'd suggest:https://www.blackbox.com/en-us/store/Detail.aspx/Component-Composite-to-HDMI-Scaler-and-Converter-with-Audio/AVSC-VIDEO-HDMI

    Nathan, will that introduce lag or other timing issues?

    I haven't tested for that, but it should be no worse than a receiver's built-in scaler.

    You're just as likely to get lag from the display itself: https://displaylag.com
