Routing everything through receiver?? Connection question.
by joshstrickler - 2/11/13 12:31 PM
Setting up the new receiver. I have home theater connection background and knowledge, but haven't used a receiver with these componets yet.
My goal is to route everything through the recevier, with 1 HDMI to the TV. However, I would like to be able to view the TV without using the speaker system when I don't want to.
I admit I haven't gone through the receiver manual 100% yet, but I mainly need to know if the receiver is able to "route" the HDMI (for audio AND video) from the Cable box to the TV even with the receiver power off.
I currently have everything routed as discribed aboved, and without much troubleshooting, it doesn't appear to allow me to do what I want. I can, however, use the speak system with the TV just fine.
I am not worried about using digital auto cable if needed for any of the components.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
