Re: The "Dark" Side of Going All HDMI
I am adding an Onkyo 605 reciever. While I want to use HDMI to transfer the audio signal to the reciever, I don't want to use it to switch between video signals, unless I have to.
My TV has three HDMI inputs. I have ordered two HDMI splitters. They look like extension cords with two places to plug in HDMI cables. I plan to hook both the reciever and the TV to the output of my Blue Ray and HD DVD players.
If this works I should be able to watch DVDs on the TV and either listen to the TV speakers or use the reciver to access surround sound.
This would also address the issues raised by JohnJ.
