Making connections for sky>amp>tv- no pass through on amp
I have the system below. All great.
Getting fed up with explaining the 3 remotes needed to power up, control volume and control volume to guests.
All my sources are connected via hdmi into the amp with 1 hdmi out of amp to plasma.
I would like to be able to switch on the tv and sky hd for everyday viewing with the amp switched off.
I would also like to obviously watch sky with Dolby digital and in hd.
There is no standby pass through on my amp.
Currently I have 1 hdmi going from sky box to lx82 and 1 hdmi going to Panasonic plasma.
Am I right in thinking the easiest work around is to run another hdmi from sky box directly to tv hdmi 2 leaving the optical connected to amp for 5.1 audio.
This would mean selecting hdmi 1 on tv for apple tv, blu ray & x box 360 and assigning hdmi 2 for everyday viewing with sky going directly to the tv and optical going to amp.
Sorry searched for threads like this but couldn't find any relevant!!
