The Sherwood R-872 is an A/V receiver built to handle two separate rooms. Inputs and outputs can be channeled to a second room, and a second infra-red sensor can be set up and wired to the receiver for separate remote control of the input. All analog video is automatically scaled to a high definition standard such as 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, and lower high definition standards can be scaled up to these standards as well. Audio output is sent out to 7.1 channels, but if a 5.1 sound system is being used the audio can automatically be scaled down appropriately. This receiver has an AM/FM tuner built in and is XM radio ready.
