Will this work?? Is it what I need??
Hi all, please bear with me.
We all try and keep her and the little ones happy yes?,
Well here is my dilema, tv =3 HDMI inputs. I ave 4 sources requiring HDMI connection and 1 component.
I got myself the Yamaha RX-v1800 amp which decodes HD, but no passthrough in standby, Has 4 HDMI inputs.
Kit is in sig,
For my wife or my son 4yrs old, to watch a Bluray this is what they got to do, turn tv on, turn on BD player and amp, tv will find the source picture only if amp is on.
Press BD/HD DVD on remote to see Bluray picture, now they only require tv volume normally so now they turn tv up to 10 but no sound cause.... Wait for it... They now got to press memory number 4 on BD remote cause 4 has the HDMI set to OTHER so that the tv volume can be heard. The amp will then only play PLII if they were to turn amp volume up. To get HD Audio thru amp they now got to press memory 1 as HDMI is set to RX-V1800.
If I ditched the CA650bd in favour of a twin HDMI bd player would this work.....? One HDMI to tv for picture and tv volume to work, other HDMI to amp to get HD audio decoding.
Is my amp able to do this?
Sorry for waffling.
