Quick question regarding duel HDMI outputs on BluRay players and older AV receivers
I'm in the market for a new BluRay player, and thinking of the Sony S790 based on its award winning status.
It has 2 HDMI outputs, which is important as I have an older AV receiver (AVR) that is not 3D capable. My new TV (Panna GT50) obviously is and I have purchased a separate HDMI cable to take advantage of a future BR players 3D capabilities.
My question is, how does this work? Currently, all my equipment plugs into my AVR with one HDMI cable going into the HDMI 1 socket on the TV. The inputs are controlled via the AVR. If I plug one HDMI lead into the HDMI 2 input on my TV and the other end into the video out of the BluRay player, then feed another HDMI cable from the other output on the BluRay player to my amp (to play sound), how will the TV be able to show the 3D picture AND play the sound via my surround sound setup?
Does that make sense? Obviously my TV will need to access both HDMI 1 AND 2 inputs at the same time, which it obviously it will not!? Or is it a case that I'll have the AVR on and set to BluRay player and just have HDMI 2 on the TV?
Sorry for the stupid question!
