The only reason to do it is for convenience sake.
If all your video sources run to your receiver first (dvd, vcr, video game, satellite) and a single video line runs from the receiver to the tv, then you just switch sources by making the selection on your receiver, no more changing the video source on your tv AND receiver everytime you switch from TV to DVD.
The only way this is feasible is if all your video sources are using component video outputs.
Which is highly unlikely.
So your best bet is to run those component cables directly from DVD to tv.
